Question 1: What drives you?
A circular economy, where waste becomes a valuable good

Question 2: Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
To identify the key needs for new technologies in the advanced recycling market to be a success. And how can these needs be addressed.
Capital injections, commercialization of the in- and output and operational assistance.

Question 3: What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Those technologies that can convert streams that today have a negative value to a valuable commodity. The winners will be those companies that operate at the most sustainable manner possible and at the lowest operating cost as possible. Reason being as market develops the combination of ESG and cost will become the main differentiators.

Question 4: What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
The impact has the cover the the full ESG spectrum. For example Environment technologies need to solve a problem and at the same time reduce emissions or hazardous outputs. Social, equality, safety and progressive development are key. Finally governance, permitting, certifications need to be measurable and reported.

Question 5: What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Change is never easy and often key events trigger changes. The good news is that the awareness that we need to solve our waste problem has reached the masses which is good point! So the main barrier is time it takes to change political and commercial standards that still exists today to fully accept the new circular economy.
