Natures Biodegradable Polymers: Made by People for People

Presenters: Dr Iza Radecka and Professor Marek Kowalczuk

18th October 2017

EnTRESS supports Black Country SMEs on the adoption of environmental technologies and resource efficiency processes for the use, recycling and recovery of materials and resources.  This presentation looked at the significant contribution the University of Wolverhampton are playing in tackling the global plastics problem, through the development of bioplastics.

With traditional manufactured plastic waste accumulating at rates in excess of 25 million tonnes per year, innovative solutions need to be found.  Bioplastics are biodegradable, but also have practical applications in the medical, agriculture, packaging and manufacturing industries.

This event was held in conjunction with University of Wolverhampton Doctoral College, to find out more details on how bioplastics are made, their industrial applications and new processes to increase the rate of production.
