CIRCULAZE Virtual Trend Tour Plastics & Packaging

Join us on Monday October 9th at 17:00 CEST as we take a look at three innovative start-up solutions to reduce the impact plastics and packaging have on our environment. After each start-ups pitch, you the audience, will have the opportunity to ask the start-ups questions directly

CIRCULAZE Virtual Trend Tour Plastics and Packaging

The proliferation of single-use plastics and the linear "take, make, dispose" approach to packaging have led to severe environmental consequences. Did you know that approximately 8 million metric tons of plastic waste enter our oceans every year? This staggering amount of waste not only threatens marine life but also enters the human food chain, impacting our health and ecosystem.

Start-ups are uniquely positioned to challenge conventional norms and develop groundbreaking technologies, materials, and business models that align with a circular economy. By identifying gaps in the market, exploring new materials, and leveraging digital tools, innovative start-ups can accelerate the transition to sustainable packaging solutions. We've invited three start-ups to share their solutions in Plastics & Packaging with you on Monday October 9th.

Following a short pitch, you the audience, will have the chance to ask our start-ups all your burning (unless you are burning plastic, of course) questions directly in a Q&A.

The Start-ups:

Plastic Back


Tal Cohen

Located In:

Tel Aviv, Israel

Plastic Back addresses the problem of plastic pollution by diverting plastics from landfills and the natural environment and converting them back to their original form (crude oil). The low temperature, chemical process allows the treatment of difficult waste streams that are not recyclable in current mechanical and chemical processes. The plastic polymer is broken down into short liquid fractions, which can then be upcycled to produce new plastics and other everyday products.



Julia and Malte Biss

Located In:

Berlin, Germany

Flustix tests products and packaging for their use and volume of plastics. Plastic-free as well as plastic-reduced products can be labelled with their symbol, providing a reliable guide for eco-conscious customers and facilitate CSR for brands.

CIRCULAZE, an initiative launched by business network CURAZE, was started to connect pioneers in sustainable business management and thought leaders to form a network together with the most relevant start- and scale-ups in the field of the Circular Economy. The goal of the community is to establish a powerful ecosystem, to exchange good practices, and inspire each other on the path to even more sustainable companies. Our motto: Can't Do It Alone.

CIRCULAZE is made possible through the friendly support of our amazing co-host dfv Mediengruppe and partners DB Cargo, ODDO BHF, Otto Krahn New Business, Knauf, Capgemini Invent, 4P Capital, Jokey, SBC Hamburg, Payback, Fressnapf, von Beust & Partner, and adelphi.
