Episode 4: Innovative Research

Presented by the Industrial Chemistry Division of the Royal Australian Chemical

Institute (RACI)

This webinar is Episode 4 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, Foundry Intellectual Property, Qenos and Reckitt Benckiser.


Date/Time: Tuesday 30th March 2021, 7:30PM - 9:00PM AEDT
