20-21 UH ENERGY SYMPOSIUM SERIES: HOUSTON: THE LOW CARBON ENERGY CAPITAL - FOUR WAYS FORWARD: CIRCULAR PLASTICS ECONOMY

UPDATE This symposium is being postponed until further notice.
Houston and the Gulf Coast has seen an unprecedented growth of the downstream chemicals and plastics industries over the last two decades, largely driven by the availability of cheap natural gas and natural gas liquids. Globally it had been anticipated that the manufacturing of plastics would grow by as much as a factor of five over the next three decades.
