Thailand Plastics Circularity Accelerator
The Incubation Network is proud to launch the Thailand Plastics Circularity Accelerator — a unique, targeted program to help scale plastic recycling businesses currently operating in Thailand or foreign companies prepared to enter the market.
Custom designed for growing the local circular economy, the program aims to be a catalyst for developing Thailand’s end market for low value plastics through an inclusive and sustainable approach.
This program is supported and funded by the Alliance to End Plastic Waste and ECCA Family Foundation.
