From Waste to Worth: The Limitless Frontier of Byproducts
Wed Nov 18 at 1:00 p.m. (1 hour)
As new tech is developed to make new products and lighter, more efficient packaging, new byproducts are also created – a feedstock is born. New feedstocks require new methods for processing and innovation, which will lead to new byproducts and new opportunities. City of Fort Worth Material Management Planners Brittany Rosenberg and Mashaal Atif will discuss the growing opportunities for entrepreneurs in the waste industry.
This workshop is interactive! Attendees are encouraged to bring their own programs, problems, and ideas for discussion.
This presentation is part of both Global Entrepreneurship Week and Fort Worth Recycles Day 2020.
