We invite you to join Polymer23, the international conference that takes circular economy to solution mode! The conference aims to inspire and bring companies together for joint efforts in all parts of the polymer value chain.
This year, we are proud to present new findings and innovative solutions as well as how these are implemented in global enterprises like Novo Nordisk and GRUNDFOS.

POLYMER23 offers you a chance to enrich your network with peers spanning the full plastics value chain – from design and production to collection, sorting and recycling.

Furthermore, the goal of the conference is to inspire your own organization with new and valuable knowledge and solutions focusing on impact and implementation.

Who are you
If you’re a manager or specialist on R&D, CSR or innovation, POLYMER23 is relevant for you. The conference has a focus on tangible solutions viewed from both a technical and business perspective.
