Episode 9: Making the Production and Use of Plastics more Sustainable

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

This webinar is Episode 9 and part of a 10-Episodes 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).

This topic supports local Australian manufacturing consisting of value-chain players and recycled content.

The scientific community of academia, education and manufacturing, powered by RACI, SCI and SPE-ANZ Section, 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.
