Karen Laird says the plastics industry is facing a “paradigm shift” to change from conventional fossil fuel feedstocks to bio-based alternatives. In the April Sustainable Plastics Live, Laird and Don Loepp discuss the sector and President Joe Biden’s surprising goal to replace 90 percent of conventional plastics with bio-based alternatives within 20 years.
Topics include an overview of bio-based plastics; the benefits and drawbacks of rapidly expanding their use. For companies with existing sustainability goals focused on recycling, how should Biden’s announcement impact their strategy?
