Plastics: Redefining Single Use

Supplementary content information

Professor Tony Ryan at the University of Sheffield, talks about the plastic waste crisis and the 'Plastics - Redefining Single Use' project, which will look at single-use plastics in food and fast-moving consumer goods packaging, as well as their plastic ingredients and medical products.

Four cross-disciplinary teams will address the circular plastic economy from a technological perspective to understand how societal behaviour adapts to increased environmental understanding, regulatory nudges, intervention, and new product development.

The project is funded via the £20 million Plastics Research and Innovation Fund, managed by UK Research and Innovation, the Fund is engaging Britain's best scientists and innovators to help move the country towards more circular economic and sustainable approaches to plastics.
