Sustainable Polymers

The plastics revolution that began in the 1960s has continued unabated. By 2015, the world had produced over 7.8 billion metric tons of plastic, which has left the planet littered with non-biodegradable consumer goods. Scientists today recognize this problem and are devising innovative methods for the production of sustainable polymers. This webinar will feature the latest efforts by two leading researchers to create exciting new polymeric products that reduce environmental impact and to address the plastics that already litter our oceans and landfills.
