New Materials Innovations, Technologies & Circular Economy Solutions To End Waste Plastic

Waste plastic in the environment has become a highly challenging environmental issue. Plastic Free World Conference & Expo Atlanta is North America’s premier conference and exhibition dedicated to discussing new strategies and technical innovations to help create a world free from plastic pollution.

Join experts from a wide range of industries, including the plastics industry, to discuss strategies to eliminate waste plastic, find and source sustainable materials and new bio-based materials, as well as the latest and next-generation innovations to close the loop and create a circular economy.  


Practical strategies and innovative solutions for reducing plastic usage across a number of industries. Learn how to eliminate single-use plastics throughout your supply chain. Plus, new design and manufacturing solutions to help reduce material waste.


Source truly sustainable alternatives to fossil fuel-based plastics and hear the latest material innovations from a number of industry-leading biomaterial, biochemical, and bioplastics experts.

Close The Loop

Create a more circular economy and learn how some of the world’s leading brands are increasing their use of upcycling to reduce their plastic footprint. Plus, understand how to design, test, and develop products to make them easier to recycle and close the loop on a more circular economy.

This year’s event takes place in Atlanta with more expert speakers, more topics covered, more exhibitors – even more reasons to be a part of the world’s most influential international conference and exhibition for companies looking for technical, manufacturing and materials innovations to help reduce their global plastic footprints
