Japan And ECOR’s First Meet During World Circular Economy Forum 2018
After being a panelist during the first World Circular Economy Forum in Finland last year, WCEF2018 saw ECOR’s returned attendance and contribution.
The Ministry of the Environment of Japan and Sitra hosted the 2nd World Circular Economy Forum in Yokohama, Japan on 22-24 October 2018. WCEF2018 presented the world’s best circular economy solutions and brought together over 1,000 key thinkers and doers from around the world.
Next to hosting a booth in the Expo Area, highlighting several applications of the technology with strategic partner DSM’s Niaga adhesive, ECOR was acknowledged its position as a Circular Economy frontrunner.
On October 23rd, ECOR’s Eric Logtens and Sann Carrière attended an intimate Trade Dinner at the Residences of the Ambassador to the Netherlands in Japan, Mr. Aart Jacobi, further discussing the opportunities and challenges of circular economy in Japan and the abroad.
Finally, on the Forum’s closing day, ECOR took place in WCEF Official Side Event: ‘integrating social, ecological and economical value.’ For the first time, Royal DSM’s President of Resins and Functional Materials, Mrs. Helen Mets and Eric Logtens gave a joined public presentation on the strategic partnership and its first results.
