Welcome to FuturePack conference 2019

International conference on plastics, circular economy, technology, business strategies and innovations for increased recycling.

We invite you to take part in the FuturePack conference in Oslo on September 10th 2019 at 09-16.00 followed by a conference dinner. 

Would you like to know how leading companies and institutes work to develop better recycling and material utilization? We have invited international companies in the plastics packaging value chain including raw materials, converters, brand owners, recyclers and technology to share their developments.

Amoung our speakers are EREMA, Clariant, Orkla and Tomra. There will be presentations from the FuturePack project also by Østfoldforskning, Nofima and Norner. Please see below for the full program.



All over the Nordic and Europe there are several projects and activities on the plastics circular economy and material recycling. FuturePack is a large Norwegian Research program into the circular economy of plastics packaging and we work both on mechanical and chemical recycling of plastics.

The project organises an annual conference and the first, in 2018, was a success.

The focus of the conference will be on circular plastic economy and mechanical recycling. We want the conference to be technically oriented with a view on how we can close the gap in volumes and quality to reach the high EU targets

General price information

  • Conference: NOK 1250,-
  • Dinner: NOK 750,-

We hope to see you in Oslo on September 10th.
