HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Encina Development Group (Encina), a producer of circular chemicals from post-consumer materials, announced today that Ms. Sheida Sahandy, Encina’s Chief Sustainability Officer will present at the World Petrochemical Conference (WPC) to be held on March 22 – 25, 2022 in Houston, TX.

The presentation is titled Catalyzing an Evolutionary Leap. Ms. Sahandy commented, “As we take stock of our global sustainability problem, the enormity and necessity of societal and economic change is apparent. For one, our relationship to natural resources must mature. The linear model of consumption is dysfunctional. There is an imperative to shift to systems which do not perpetually require virgin resource inputs, and which also do not treat all outputs as waste; there is an imperative to shift to the circular economy. The array of mechanisms (regulations, public education, policy, commercial, etc.) must be deployed in relation to the case of advanced recycling. It is only with such full deployment and alignment of all available tools can we hope to rise to this next challenge of evolution: sustainability.”

WPC assembles an unparalleled lineup of leading industry executives featuring major chemical companies and leading organizations discussing the critical issues that impact the chemical market. It offers numerous networking opportunities and a variety of industry leading training courses. The link to the event is https://wpc.ihsmarkit.com/index.html.
