Cleantech Council delegates meet monthly to discover startups and innovation across clean, green, and sustainable technologies and build community with colleagues from like-minded corporations committed to paving the road to a sustainable future through partnership. This month, we open our meeting to the public, as we look at innovation opportunities in recycling


Although the Call for Speakers is now closed, some opportunities available to market leaders, topic experts and startups innovating in this segment are still available, including in-room demo and meeting tables. If open, options will be available during online registration.


A growing commitment to fight the climate crisis by manufacturers and their consumers had led several companies to focus their energies on harnessing the power of recycling. Not only committing to it for their own production practices, but actually making it the focal point of their enterprise. 

While plastics are the first material that comes to mind when we think of recycling, there are many other materials that can be moved towards a circular economy. Metals are high-value items, and battery minerals are quickly becoming an important target. Pushed by governments and pulled by ESG programs by manufacturers and their consumers, companies are increasingly seeking to both use recycled materials, and plan to close the loop with a plan for where their materials go after a life in their products.

Companies invite to this agenda are working on: 

  • Water recycling
  • 2nd life phones
  • Bioplastics
  • 2nd life wood
  • Rubber


Regular participants include tech scouts, innovation strategy, partnership executives and corporate development delegates from:

  • Energy & Utility companies 
  • Materials & Chemical companies 
  • Mobility & Automotive companies
  • Cleantech & Greentech investors
