Understanding Ingeo in a Low-Carbon and Circular Economy Context

This workshop provides an in-depth briefing on the role of Ingeo biomaterials in a low-carbon, circular economy from responsible sourcing to enabling appropriate recovery options like composting and recycling.

Experts in these areas from NatureWorks will cover topics such as: latest work in feedstock sustainability and certification, an update on relevant regional/global regulations, strategies and pilots to increase the recovery of Ingeo, and the latest Ingeo LCA and eco-profile data.

About Tim Goodman

As Cradle-to-Cradle Manager for NatureWorks, Tim is responsible for developing and implementing end-of-life (EOL) management strategies for the recovery of Ingeo™ PLA from the post-consumer waste stream. More specifically, current efforts are focused on recycling and composting options though other non-landfill EOL management methods such as anaerobic digestion and energy from waste are also considered.

Tim has 30+ years in the solid waste/recycling industry. In this time he has served in both government and the private waste services industry. With experience in a variety of end-of-life management methods – including recycling, composting, incineration and landfilling – he has dedicated his career to pushing boundaries toward the concept of zero waste management (or something close to it).


Don’t just take our word for it

You can create value by doing something that's good for the world, and I'm not talking about making money and then giving it away. I'm talking about the way you make money is by doing something that the world needs, and so that's what's so -- one of the things that's so inspiring about being here is that that is underlying all the businesses here.

I'm inspired from the standpoint that I'm coming back from the conference with an understanding of more of the material science. And that's really, really, really important because that means that it's going to impact work that I've got going on in the laboratory right now.
Jesse Hipps
Anyone that's out there, whether you're a product or service provider or just somebody that wants to understand what's happening in the bioplastics industry, I recommend strongly that you think about coming to Innovation Takes Root. This is a conference where you're going to learn a lot, you're going to actually be able to have the opportunity to collaborate with others and develop partnerships that will last a lifetime.
