The participatory development workshop was organized by AAU within the context of the Maritimt Block-kraft project funded by Industriens Fond. A total of 12 stakeholders related to the Danish blockchain and plastic domain participated in the online event. The participants in the workshop included representatives from industries that use, produce or process plastic and plastic waste, companies working with plastic waste logistics, the National Plastics Center, the plastics industry, and experts in blockchain technology from academia and the consultancy sector. The purpose of the workshop was to explore scenarios to be used in connection with the Maritimt Block-kraft project. More specifically, the purpose of the workshop was to derive scenarios that explore opportunities and barriers to the use of Blockchain technology in supporting increased and improved recycling of plastics, with a focus on post-industrial and post-commercial plastics, and on both SMEs and larger companies.
