Dear Colleagues, Researchers, and Industry Partners,

I am thrilled to warmly welcome you to the Plastic Recycling Research Cluster (PRRC) , an innovative and collaborative endeavor at the University of British Columbia (UBC). The PRRC comprises a distinguished team of both early-career and established researchers across our two campuses—UBCV and UBCO—who have been recognized for their impressive and impactful collaborative research efforts. As the Lead of the PRRC, I am privileged to extend this invitation for you to join us on our transformative journey towards a sustainable and circular economy for plastics.

Perhaps one of the most pressing environmental challenges in our daily lives is plastic waste. We believe it is imperative to address this issue through diligent research, innovative solutions, and collective engagement. With the goal of revolutionizing plastic recycling practices and contributing to a cleaner, more sustainable future, PRRC has brought together a diverse group of professionals from academia, business, and non-profit sectors.

At the heart of PRRC is a distinct vision—we envisage a world where plastic waste is responsibly managed, mitigating its detrimental effects on our environment and ecosystems. We are committed to promoting a circular economy for waste plastics where these materials can be repurposed into valuable resources, leveraging the power of scientific research, technological advancements, public education, and effective policy-making.

We firmly believe that collective effort is key to making significant strides forward. Thus, we warmly invite you to become an integral part of our vibrant community of academics, professionals, and industry experts, all driven by a common goal: to address the problems posed by plastic waste. Collaboration allows us to harness a plethora of perspectives, skills, and insights, fostering inventive ideas and facilitating tangible global impact.

I encourage you to delve into our PRRC website to learn more about our ongoing projects, scientific breakthroughs, and forthcoming events. Our interdisciplinary approach equips us to tackle the complex issues surrounding plastic recycling from various angles, advocating for comprehensive, holistic solutions. Lastly, we deeply value your support and interest. We eagerly look forward to working with you and witnessing the positive change we can orchestrate together in the world.

Thank you.
