Joan Hanegraaf is the owner and Managing Director of Oerlemans Packaging. Joan is also very active in the packaging branche organisations including board membership of NRK, NRK Verpakkingen, StiMo and ‘Het Afvalfonds’. On the 10th of June 2016 Joan gave a TED talk – ‘From sewage sludge to plastic’ at TedX Veghel. This high speed talk covers various topics, from Plastic soup to biobased plastics, from food waste and cucumber foil to ‘Titanic Politics’, from Carrier bags to consumer behaviour and a strong call for a circular economy where no plastic is wasted. The content is still topical and we are pleased to have a subtitled version available for our international network!
