Plastics in Packaging

Updated: Jul 29









The Section is collaborating with Materials Australia and RMIT for this webinar with the support of Associate Professor Fugen Daver from the School of Engineering at RMIT.


This webinar will cover new developments in biodegradable materials at RMIT for packaging applications. In particular the importance of water resistance and barrier properties of plastics applications in packaging is in the foreground of attention. The importance of biodegradability of plastics will be highlighted in view of the sustainability agenda and plastics waste accumulation.


Also this time we envisage that the webinar will commence by featuring a presentation in the “Plastics make it happen” series which will cover design and application using composite materials in race rowing boats manufactured by Jeff Sykes & Associates in Geelong.

Date/Time: Wednesday, 11th August 2021, 12:15 pm to 2 pm
