AIMday Sustainable Solutions

Packaging, water, food processing and by-products

February 2, 2022

Virtual

Many manufacturers are looking at their packaging to reduce costs as well as creating less waste including negative environmental impacts.

This event will bring manufacturers and academics together to answer questions from industry,  including but not limited to innovative ideas in sustainable solutions in packaging, water, recycling and composting infrastructure, food processing, by-products, business decisions and best practices.

Sustainability has been a motivation for companies, governments and post-secondary researchers to seek greener solutions, and on the minds of consumers for decades. Join us as we explore these opportunities and bring together industry, academia, and experts to explore innovations in sustainable solutions. We are hoping to connect you with ideas, best practices, resources, and research to support your pathways to solutions.
