TUM ASIA PLASTIC RECYCLING VIRTUAL WORKSHOP

(REGISTER FOR INTEREST) 

ABOUT 

Plastics have become a very important part of modern living, and they are used in almost every part of our daily life. In Singapore, an extra 1,334 tonnes of plastic waste, equivalent to the weight of 92 double-decker buses, was generated from takeaway and delivery meals during the two-month circuit breaker period of stay-home curbs in Singapore. Inevitably, this poses a challenge to the environment and resources. Where do we stand in Singapore’s Zero Waste Masterplan? Hear from our experts share on plastic waste recycling as one of the approaches towards addressing these challenges.
