UPCYCLING FOR A BETTER WORLD 2019 “Sustainnovation” provides the core upcycling vision

13 September 2019, Bangkok – Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC) and Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC) join hands with PTT Global Chemical Public Company Limited (GC) and partners from various sectors to organize the press conference and opening of UPCYCLING FOR A BETTER WORLD 2019, a spectacular showcase of upcycling design projects, developments, and innovations destined to transform unwanted materials into valuable items fit for everyday household use.

As an organizing partner, MQDC is committed to creating and developing innovative ideas through collaborations within and outside Thailand – all under the vision of Sustainnovation. This involves searching for innovative ideas for sustainability at every MQDC property development, taking into account everything from construction efficiency to eliminate waste and the ongoing use of resources in accordance with the circular economy. Like MQDC, GC has adapted the concept of the circular economy to encourage all sectors to embrace GC Circular Living.

Upcycling projects on display at the show include the world debut of hand-woven carpets made from discarded plastic bottles from the sea. Additionally, there was a seminar on “Upcycling For A Better World” with speakers from all sectors that play an important role in driving the upcycling trend, from waste management and environmental conservation to the promotion of the real-world use of upcycled products.
