Presentation Abstract

The circular economy; the new reality (Breakout IV)

This presentation will provide background to the European Commission’s Roadmap for establishing a circular economy in Europe. It will set out FEICA’s views on the circular economy and discuss how this integrates with our Sustainable Development Agenda.

Working with its members, FEICA has prepared a position paper for the adhesive and sealant sector demonstrating how our materials contribute to the circular economy by eliminating waste, facilitating repair, reducing weight and saving energy. The position paper will also explain how we must work on ecodesign principles and at the same time innovate to support an increase in recycle for some sectors.

A new FEICA video will be shown that highlights the importance of adhesives and sealants to our 21st century world.
