New Paths for Materials
in the Circular Economy

Online training course for companies and professionals

From decarbonisation, to controversies over plastic, to recycling supply chains, a new path in six “pills” to explore the most relevant themes around materials in the circular economy.

How do materials intervene in decarbonization strategies? Is plastic really evil? What happens to materials at their end-of-life? How do existing recycling infrastructures work and which ones are under development?

To answer these and other questions, Materially proposes a new 8-hour training course, in which we will address the most urgent issues that emerge in the phases of setting up and implementing circularity strategies starting from materials.

Training Programme Content

The course focuses on 3 topics and is structured into six short modules held by experts from the Materially team, accompanied by 3 guests with specific expertise, who will provide timely insights on LCA, recycling, carbon capture technologies. Each module has a duration of 75 minutes, including Q&A and interaction sessions, and will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 17:00 to 18:15. The webinars will be held in English.
