As recycling expert aboard The Beagle  replica which traced Charles Darwin’s historic journeys in a televised expedition around the world,  Arend Bolt (Van Gansewinkel B.V – waste management industry giant) sailed through thousands of tonnes of plastic in the oceans. What did he discover and what solutions can some of the world’s most established waste recycling industries offer to combat such a complex and extensive disaster?  Discover the friction between current technologies, economics and innovation in a presentation that will draw on examples from around the world and challenge our ideas about plastic problems and their solutions.
