On Thursday, March 21, 2019, the Veolia Institute organized a conference-debate on "Reinventing Plastics" on the occasion of the publication of its review dedicated to the same theme. The speakers were Laurent Auguste, Senior EVP Innovation & Markets, member of Comex, Veolia; Eric Brac de la Perrière, Founder of Yoyo; Jean-Marie Julien, Materials Expertise Manager, L'Oréal; Maria Luiza Pedrotti, CNRS marine biologist specialized in micro-plastics at the LOV (Laboratoire Océanographique de Villefranche-sur-Mer).
Once perceived as a symbol of modernity, plastics have been the subject of a rapid and profound global challenge in recent years, particularly because of ocean pollution.
