Innovation Pitch Series
Dragons' EcoDen Event #2 - Single-use Plastics and Packaging Alternatives
Thursday 17th September, 11:00-12:30
The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP), in collaboration with the ASBP Plastics in Construction Group, has launched an exciting new innovation pitch series.
Aimed at innovators, start-ups and manufacturers launching new product ranges, the purpose of the ‘Dragons’ Den’ style event programme is to identify innovative alternatives to conventional plastic building materials and packaging. The products can be at any stage of the innovation cycle from early development to market ready.
Please join us on Thursday 17th September, 11:00-12:30 for the second of our Dragons’ EcoDen® pitch events, focused on alternatives to single-use plastics and packaging for construction products.
