EnTRESS Inaugural Workshop

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 will look 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.

Attend this event to find out more details on how bioplastics are made, their industrial applications and new processes to increase the rate of production. This event has been done in conjunction with University of Wolverhampton Doctoral College, to attend this event book here.
