The IOM3 Polymer Group (formerly the Polymer Society) is a community of professionals with a shared technical interest in polymers, led by a team of volunteers. The group supports the development of future sustainable polymer supply chains by facilitating knowledge exchange and actively engaging in consultations and policy shaping. The group seeks to embed sustainability and circular principles into all aspects of production, processing, application and recovery and covers all technical, educational and professional considerations related to polymers. The group includes the former Polymer Processing & Engineering Committee.
Papers include Improved mechanical and water absorption properties of epoxy-bamboo long natural fibres composites by eco-friendly Na2CO3 treatment, and Evaluation of lignin as potential green filler in an optimally designed solution grade styrene–butadiene rubber (SSBR) based tyre tread compound.
I believe the purpose and values of the Polymer Group have never been so important. Polymers will no doubt play a key role in the future of energy and resources, food, health, mobility & infrastructure and communication.
Cross-sector fireside chat focussing on decarbonisation and process efficiencies in the polymer, steel and light metals industries. A collaborative project between IOM3 and the Nordic country Chambers of Commerce.
