Conference Circular Economy and Resource Efficiency – What materials can bring to the table (and customers can pick up) organised by ARA Innovation Space and the Federation of Austrian Industries.

In the current debate surrounding the EU circular economy package and its implementation in trade and industry, it is crucial to also include aspects related to ressources and raw materials as well as considering questions of environmental protection and emissions.

Representatives of industries, science and research as well as politics contrast the functional meaning and characteristics of the three material categories permanent materials, renewable materials and fossil materials from a sustainability and circular economy point of view. The analysis took into consideration both the perspective of science as well as of industrial use, placing particular emphasis on consumer goods (FMCG) and packaging.
