Join the virtual Science for Sustainability Symposia
The sustainable use of raw materials in a way that conserves resources and protects the climate has been of central importance to the environment, the economy and society for many years.
Our use of plastics for instance in everyday items and manufacturing processes has resulted in a deluge of slowly degradable materials entering our environment and our food chain. Therefore, a sustainable use of raw materials is required in order to act in a resource and environmentally friendly way. Deepen your understanding of microplastic contaminants, bio-friendly alternatives to environmentally harmful materials and research into alternative energy resources and recycling.
Attend the virtual Science for Sustainability Symposia where international technical experts and scientists in the field will share perspectives to advance science, and to facilitate collaborations, in order to support researchers towards a cleaner, healthier and safer world.
Global Microplastics Symposium
Hear from analytical experts as they review the challenges associated with identifying and quantifying contaminants, like plastics in the environment. Learn the best methods to provide meaningful data and important insights on studying the microplastics in different geo-environment and different sample matrices. It will end with a panel discussion where you can engage with experts looking to assessing risks and developing regulations for microplastics.
Biomaterials & Recycling Symposium
In this series, technical experts discuss how material characterization techniques have helped enabling research on recycling materials such as plastics, and on the manufacturing and characterization of innovative materials with sustainable properties such as biopolymers.
Join us to learn about the latest innovations in sustainable materials and environmental research, while taking advantage of networking opportunities with experts. We look forward to staying connected with you virtually!
