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

I strongly recommend Innovation Takes Root. It's a good opportunity to understand and see what happens in this area of biopolymers. It's an international event and not just on PLA. I think it's well done, well-managed, and well-organized. It was a good investment for me.

I'd definitely come back (to ITR) and recommend it. I think many different industries could learn something from a conference like this - it really is focused on the next level of sustainability.

It has been a wonderful event; very well organized. I especially appreciate the scheduling of activities, the alternation of speeches, and time to network, which has been one of the key successes from my point of view. We also felt very supported by your team; we had the feeling you believe in what Flo is doing and, for us, that's very important.
