Bath Taps Into Science: Panel Discussion: Discussion: Combating Pollution Through New Biodegradable Plastics

Mon 12 Mar 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

There would rarely be a dive where I wouldn’t find some form of plastic from a thread of plastic fishing line, sweet wrappers or plastic bottles,” assistant producer of Blue Planet 2, Sarah Conner told the BBC.

Plastics are everywhere around us and form key parts of modern day life. Researchers at the University of Bath are working hard to develop new types of polymers that are stronger, better and more sustainable. In this discussion we will have three researchers talking about their work in the creation of new polymer materials including recyclable and biodegradable plastics. After hearing what impact their research is having we will open the floor for discussion and questions.

Panel includes:

  • Professor Gareth Price
  • Dr Janet Scott
  • Dr Antoine Buchard
  • Dr Helen Featherstone
