Launch and Panel Discussion | State of the Science on Plastic Chemicals: Identifying and Addressing Chemicals and Polymers of Concern

March 14 , 9:00 am 10:30 am EDT

Launching a new report from the PlastChem Project, this event organized within the framework of the Geneva Beat Plastic Pollution Dialogues, will provide a platform for stakeholders to discuss the latest state of science on plastic chemicals and polymers of concern and identify way to address them.

Chemicals are a central aspect of the plastics issue. Although there is a wealth of science-based information to inform policy makers, implementing scientific data is challenging because information is scattered and not easily accessible. The PlastChem project addresses the fragmented understanding of plastic chemicals, their hazard properties, and their presence in polymers. This initiative has created a high-quality, comprehensive state-of-the-science report synthesizing publicly available evidence to inform future-proof policy development that protects public health and the environment
