Industry Upward: Global Chemical Management and Sustainable Development – CRAC2023

Nov. 16th, 2023


Gain Immediate Access to the CRAC2023 Post Conference Report!

As the “dual carbon” policy gets enriched by the Chinese national government and local administrations in these years, sustainability has become a promising blueprint and a challenge for those seeking to enter and succeed in the Chinese market. In addition, with the development of digitalization and informatization, the management of hazardous chemicals has also evolved in both theory and practice, posing new perspectives and opportunities for companies.

At CRAC 2023, we will be addressing not only the anticipated updates in chemical regulations worldwide but also several related sectors to broaden the industry’s horizons. Our goal is to engage in meaningful discussions on topics that are truly important and valuable, with the aim of helping the industry break free from conventional thinking and drive innovative changes to adapt to these evolving times.

Parallel Session: Global Insights on Recycled Plastics

The increasing demand for sustainable practices and the global push towards reducing plastic waste have propelled the movement for plastic restrictions and the implementation of regulations related to recycled plastics. This shift has gained significant momentum worldwide. Particularly, the safety assessment and compliance standards for recycled plastics used in food contact applications have become a focal point of attention.

At CRAC 2023, attendees will have the opportunity to gain insights into the specific regulatory requirements, compliance standards, and market trends in China, the EU, the US, and other relevant markets. Experts and industry professionals will share their experiences and strategies for navigating the regulatory landscape, ensuring compliance, and meeting the growing demand for sustainable materials.
