Green Chemistry for Polymers
In the long-term industry will have to find substitutes for fossil fuels as supplies diminish and costs rise: so what is a sustainable resource for synthesis of conventional plastics? At Green Polymer Chemistry 2012 in Cologne, Germany, AMI brought together experts from agriculture, chemical engineering, biotechnology, the polymer industry and sustainability managers from brand owners and the automotive sector to hear all the angles on this topic.
The conference provided a unique opportunity for agriculture, biotechnologists, brand owners, venture capitalists and polymer experts to gather and debate the issues. Green Polymer Chemistry 2013 will be held at the Maritim Hotel, Cologne, Germany from 19-21 March 2013. Paper offers should be sent to Dr Sally Humphreys (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the deadline of 14th September 2012.
