EnTRESS Inaugural Workshop

Natures Biodegradable Polymers: Made by People for People  


Presenters: Dr Iza Radecka & Professor Marek Kowalczuk
Date: 18th October | Time 5pm -7pm
Venue: University of Wolverhampton City Campus, Millennium Building Room MC001

The Environmental Technology and Resource Efficiency Support Service (EnTRESS) in collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton’s Doctoral College is very pleased to invite you to its inaugural workshop on Bioplastics.

EnTRESS supports Black Country SMEs on the adoption of environmental technologies and resource efficiency processes for the use, recycling and recovery of materials and resources. This presentation will look at the significant contribution of the University of Wolverhampton in tackling the global plastics problem, through the development of Bioplastics.

With traditional manufactured plastic waste accumulating at rates in excess of 25 million tonnes per year, innovative solutions need to be found. Bioplastics are biodegradable, but also have practical applications in the medical, agriculture, packaging and manufacturing industries.

Attend this event to find out more on how Bioplastics are made, their industrial applications and new processes to increase their rate of production. Attendees will also learn about funding opportunities in this area along with details of the support available through EnTRESS.
