Discover more about current trends in polymer processing with the Applied Polymer Technologies (APT) Webinar Series, ‘Trends in Polymer Processing & Investigations’. The next webinar in the series is presented by Dr Margaret Brennan Fournet and Dr Marija Mojicevic.
Dr Margaret Brennan Fournet
Title: Sustainable Plastics for your Enterprise
This webinar details radically new technology developments which can accommodate circularity for an increasingly wide source of plastics and polymers, including those that are not recycled/recyclable today. Innovation in for how plastics are made, unmade and remade can deliver highly economically feasible routes to transition from the linear to the circular plastics economy.

Title: From waste to biopolymers: closing the circle for plastics economy
In the midst of a global health pandemic, we are ignoring another pandemic that has been going on for decades and is rarely in the public spotlight: the plastic waste pandemic. This webinar will focus on alternatives for plastic materials. It will provide insights into the challenges of biopolymers production and discuss their importance and overall use. Recent findings in biopolymer science will be summed up with a special highlight on using plastic-related materials as a feedstock for biomaterial synthesis.
