Interview with Thomas Herrmann, CEO at Herrmann Ultraschalltechnik GmbH & Co. KG.

All players along the plastics value-added chain are joining forces in Europe to initiate a functionable circular economy. No other country has such an initiative. Will Europe soon be at a competitive disadvantage?

Plastics packaging, perceived by the public as floating layers of plastics in the oceans, have become the target of criticism. How do you deal with this criticism?

Could bio-plastics become the commodity of the future?

Which commercial benefits does circular economy offer?

What should politicians do to support circular economy?

To what extent does digitalisation support the implementation of circular economy?
