NMA Lunchtime Seminar: Focus on Bioplastics
You are invited to join us for our monthly virtual event where we will be focusing on bioplastics. This event will explore how plants and other natural materials can be used to create a range of bioplastics which can be used to craft a more sustainable future.
You will hear from:
- Cristina Silva Pereira will talk about the unseen value of plant polyesters: linking chemical structure to function
- Elisabete Frollini will talk on bio-based materials from plant sources
- Mariagiovanna Vetere will talk about the role of biopolymers in the Circular economy
The interactive seminar will also provide the opportunity for Question and Answers and we often hang around at the end for a fun and engaging panel session.
