2019 Speaker Harmen Spek

Harmen’s commercial background is in media and design, where he developed a major passion for materials and manufacturing. Many products are currently based on a ‘short lifecycle’, where plastic as the cheapest material is maintained as the principal element of the success formula.
Harmen’s drive is to change this short cycle thinking, and change it into a model in which plastic is held in reserve as a high quality technical material and certainly not for single use products. A transition to alternative materials is key here. He is also on a worldwide search for the best technical solutions for the environmental problems that plastics create.
