Call for Presentations

RCBC is calling on industry professionals, academics, innovators, communicators, public educators, policy makers, consultants and entrepreneurs to share their knowledge and experience reusing or eliminating waste in the transition to a circular economy. Are you working towards a world without waste? Do you incorporate circular economy principles and practices in your work and/or business?  Do you have examples of successful projects, programs, and initiatives in which waste was reduced, eliminated, or diverted to reuse, remanufacturing, or as feedstock for new products? Have you generated new sustainable economic opportunities? Do you have an idea that can be tomorrow’s circular start up? If so, then we invite you to consider presenting at RCBC 2019.
