ACI’s Future of Chemical Recycling 2024: Realising the Economic and Efficiency Potential of Used Material
ACI is proud to launch this landmark event in the realm of sustainable waste-material management. The two-day event will be taking place in Rotterdam, Netherlands on the 31st January to 1st February, and bring together key stakeholders from Chemical and Energy Providers, Raw Material Suppliers, Packaging Manufacturers, Recycling Service and Technology Providers, Chemical and Sustainability Associations, Senior Chemical Consultants and Research Academics. Set against the backdrop of global concerns about plastic pollution and environmental sustainability, this conference places innovation and sustainability at the forefront of discussions.
Sustainability as a Driving Force:
Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword; it’s the guiding principle. Speakers and panellists will delve into the environmental and economic benefits of chemical recycling. Through exclusive interactive discussions, they’ll dive into how this innovation can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, cut carbon emissions, and contribute to a circular economy where plastics are continuously reused, reducing the need for new production.
Regulatory and Investment Insights:
Regulatory frameworks and funding opportunities will also be in the spotlight. Attendees can expect to gain critical insights into the evolving legal landscape surrounding chemical recycling, which will play a pivotal role in shaping its future. Moreover, investors keen on backing sustainability initiatives will find opportunities to connect with innovative startups and established players in the field.
Indeed, ACI’s Future of Chemical Recycling 2024 represents a pivotal moment in the journey towards a sustainable plastics future. By bringing together innovators, experts, and stakeholders, the event is poised to accelerate progress in the field of chemical recycling, driving us closer to a world where waste material is transformed into a valuable resource.

Plastic is light, accessible, strong and durable, but the amount of plastic waste generated and the treatment of that waste has been a matter of growing concern across the world. BlueAlp brings to the market its pyrolysis technology that can make plastic as circular as possible, as fast as possible. With a mission to accelerate plastic recycling, BlueAlp was founded in 2015 and is currently owned by Shell, Mourik, Renasci, Den Hartog, and Rumali. The company launched its first pilot plant with a capacity of 3,000 tonnes p.a. in 2004 in Switzerland, followed by the launch of the first commercial plant with a capacity of 17,000 tonnes p.a. in Ostend, Belgium in 2020. BlueAlp’s patent-protected technology introduces improvements that enable continuous and reliable operation of the pyrolysis units. The company is working on introducing increased processing capacity for its technology and licensing it to third parties. This will help accelerate plastic circularity across the world through the BlueAlp technology. Starting 2023, the focus at BlueAlp has been to enhance its processes to ensure that it is energy-efficient and has minimal impact on climate change and the environment.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:
• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions
Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
