Webinar - Fracking, plastics and the climate - the still widely unknown nexus and its implications for the European Green Deal

English
Plastics cause pollution and health concerns, but also fuel climate change. Capitalizing on ethane derived from fracked US shale gas, petrochemical firms have teamed up with the fracking industry and have fueled the virgin plastic production at a time when society understands that we need to tackle both, the plastic and climate crisis.
 
The first debate in this series looks at the entire life cycle of plastics, with a special focus on the upstream part of it. Why is the industry so greenhouse gas intensive? What do current supply chains mean for transatlantic relationships? What does the EU do to tackle this issue?
