Polymer-based and Renewable Organics
Polymer materials are widespread in the packaging industry as well as the basis of everyday as well as industrial products. The production of this important materials class from renewable ressources, biomass or waste is one of the key challenges for improved sustainability. Further, biodegradability has to be balanced with product requirements such as barrier functions, mechanical stability etc. In this session the generation of sustainable polymer materials as well as the production and application of organic compounds from waste streams and other renewable ressources will be discussed.
