Episode 1: Plastics' Frontiers: Cutting Edge Innovations

Updated: Feb 13, 2021

Presented by the Industrial Chemistry Division of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI).

This webinar is part of a 10-episode virtual webinar series, a collaboration between the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI), Society of Chemical Industries (SCI) and the Society of Plastics Engineers: Australia-New Zealand Section (SPE: A-NZ Section).

The scientific community in conjunction with the Plastics Industry powered by RACI, SPE-ANZ and SCI has never been more enthusiastic and united to correct the public’s perception of plastics.

Is it a problem, benefit or a game-changer?

This collaboration and webinar series will highlight innovations, challenges, sustainable uses, recycling and the future of plastics nationally and globally. The collaboration between the various association groups have secured a number of national and international speakers to bring you the webinar series.

The collaboration partners acknowledge the sponsorship by BASF Australia.


Date/Time: Tuesday 16th February 2021, 7:30 pm - 9:00 PM AEST.
