It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad.

Circular Economy and Chemical Technologies
4 September 2019
12:30—13:30

The current challenges become a driver which inevitable transforms the economic model from linear to circular type. One of the key elements in this process is the re-use of waste in production, which allows reducing the amount of natural resources extracted and the associated processes intensity. Plastic pollution is at the top of the global public agenda nowadays, while the most relevant solution to this issue is a well-designed system for the plastic collection, processing and disposal. R&D investments, regulatory measures, educational projects all around the world are aimed at implementing this model. Harnessing the potential of plastic recycling is in the focus of the petrochemical industry as well. What are the prospects of plastic waste management? What are the differences between processing technologies? Can biopolymers become a universal solution to the problem?
