On Thursday 15 March 2018 in Guingamp, U'Cosmetics, a student competition and professional conference, invites you to come and discover the world of up-cycling: this trend which consists in recycling by-products, unused biomass, co-products… The day is organized around seven conferences and will end with the student competition awards.

Reading time : ~ 3 minutes

For its 9th edition, U'Cosmetics is focusing its professional conference on the world of up-cycling. Up-cycling is the action of recovering materials or products that are no longer used in order to transform them into personalized and innovative products. It is recycling"from the top", a concept that combines environmental benefit and innovation. Seven conferences and a round table will enable professionals to discuss the subject.
