During the event, Niwat Athiwattananont, Technology Director of SCGC, participated in a panel discussion on “Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) Economy: Pathways to Enhance Partnerships between Thailand and Latin America and the Caribbean” to emphasize the importance of commercial research and development, which leads to eco-friendly plastic innovation in line with circular economy principles under the “SCGC GREEN POLYMER” brand. The brand offers four solutions: REDUCE, RECYCLABLE, RECYCLE, and RENEWABLE, aligned with mega-trends and global consumer demands. These solutions cater to partners and product brand owners seeking sustainable solutions and innovations, consistent with Thailand’s BCG economic policy, which promotes economic growth and sustainable development.
