West of England Sustainable Technologies Scale-Up Programme – Chemical Pollution and the Circular Economy
About this event
Chemical pollution is an urgent, critical issue for humanity, on equal footing with biodiversity loss and climate change. It is a global problem but there is no truly effective, independent global scientific advice mechanism to help mitigate and eliminate the harmful effects – both known and yet to be discovered – of poorly managed chemicals, waste and pollution. This must change.
At this event, we will hear from Professor Matthew Davidson, Director of the Centre for Sustainable and Circular Technologies (CSCT) at the University of Bath and iCAST, who will present his scientific and academic expertise on this subject.
Following our keynote talk, we will be joined by representatives from companies developing environmentally sensitive and renewable alternatives.
