STEPS towards a sustainable future of plastics
The vision of Mistra funded research program “STEPS – Sustainable Plastics and Transition Pathway” is a future society where plastics are sustainably developed, produced, used and recycled in a circular economy. Program Director Prof. Rajni Hatti-Kaul, Lund University, tells about the challenges in this cross-border program.
STEPS is performed with industrial partners to reflect the market needs for sustainable plastic systems. Perstorp is one participant and Dr. Åsa Halldén Björklund explains why research within new sustainable plastics is important for industry. Key-questions are how industry can contribute to research and how to utilize the new findings in industrial applications.
