Episode 2: Solving the challenges facing our use of plastics

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

Presented by the Industrial Chemistry Division of the Royal Australian Chemical

Institute (RACI)

This webinar is Episode 2 and 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 of academia, education and manufacturing powered by RACI, SCI and SPE-ANZ, has never been more enthusiastic and united to correct the public’s perception of plastics.

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

The collaboration between these association groups has secured a number of national and international speakers to bring you this webinar series which will be show-casing innovations, challenges, sustainable uses, recycling and the future of plastics nationally and globally.

The collaboration partners acknowledge the sponsorships by BASF Australia and Reckitt Benckiser.


Date/Time: Tuesday 2nd March 2021, 7:30PM - 9:00PM AEST
