Recently (from 30. September to 02. October), the Upper Austrian Future Forum was held in Linz, in the “Palais Kaufmännischer Verein“. 72 Speakers in 12 Sessions discussed future trends, where also TCKT was represented with some exhibits to show new developments in regard to recycling and composites, respectively. Recycling of plastics was also the topic of the talk Christoph Burgstaller held in the session “Plastics in discussion”, where a lot of interest was sparked with the results, which show how the life cycle can be closed.
