Plastics – future options to improve sustainability

We all recognise current global plastics production is unsustainable. Yet these materials can often improve sustainability through insulation, light-weighting of vehicles and future clean technologies. So how can chemistry and materials science improve the sustainability of plastics? In this talk Trinity Fellow, Professor of Inorganic Chemistry Charlotte Williams OBE will explore all the available options including renewables, efficient recycling, and building in sustainability at the earliest stages of technological development.
