Reimagining Plastic — Niall Dunne

Saturday, Talks Barn


As the issue of single use plastics grips the nation, many have begun to advocate for alternative and more environmentally friendly materials such as paper and corn-starch.

However, Niall Dunne, chief executive of Polymateria, a plastic waste reduction company, believes that we should be altering the properties of plastic to make it biodegradable instead.

“Plastic captured the mind-set overnight, but there’s a lot of pushing agendas, we need to be super collaborative, draw people in and make them part of the innovation instead.”
