LISTEN TO US: PODCAST21

If you don't have a podcast, it's like you don't exist! And when you have the opportunity to discuss with interesting people, and you also have the need to break down the media shortcuts that topics in your field are often presented with, much to your annoyance, then a podcast is the ideal format. And so we took the plunge and PODCAST21 was born. First, we focused on recycling and recorded the first episodes in a series called Masters of Recycling, before tackling the topic of packaging with all the vigour we could muster. Within the framework of the Packaging21 project, supported by the TECHNOLOGY FOR THE 21ST CENTURY FOUNDATION, we have analysed various aspects of packaging, especially plastic packaging, in several parts. From the point of view of several stakeholders, from manufacturers to retailers and authorised packaging companies to consumers. We talked about the legislation related to packaging, sorting systems (by the way, the part on EPR was probably the most "lively"), we leaned into the mandatory backup system and so far we got to the part on chemical recycling. We filmed the latter with David Sury, Deputy Minister of the Environment, just as the new European Commission regulation on packaging was expected to be drafted.
We definitely plan to improve PODCAST21, especially technically, and even though we don't have ambitions to score points in the podcast charts and compete with the best podcasts, we definitely want to at least come close to them.
