Abstract

Reversing the extraordinary growth in the production and accumulation of primary plastics in the environment will require collaboration across research disciplines and scales—from the chemical building blocks to product life cycles, producer and consumer incentives, and waste management. After a recent Cell Press LabLinks symposium on the topic, this Voices asks the event participants: what are the major research priorities for moving toward a circular economy for plastics?
