Summary: 
Getting Gr3n pitch perfect - It was clear that we were in for a high octane performance when Dr Maurizio Crippa took to the stage to pitch Gr3n (pronounced ‘green’), as he immediately asked the audience to raise their hands if they had never used a backpack or bought a T-shirt. Needless to say, no hands went up. Dr Crippa’s point was that PET/polyester plastics are ubiquitous in the manufacture of, as he put it, ‘containers for food and drinks, as well as for people’. Deriving from the same synthetic polymer source, the acronym PET is ascribed to its use in packaging (such as bottles), whereas the term ‘polyester’ denotes its use in textiles.
