Making Plastic Greener Through Next Generation Polymers

March 5, 2015

sustainable polymers cycle

In this presentation Dr. Marc Hillmyer will introduce the Center for Sustainable Polymers and give an overview of the current research portfolio aimed at the discovery of efficient and precision conversions of renewable raw materials into innovative polymeric products that outperform the current suite of non-sustainable polymers from performance, environmental, and cost perspectives. 

What You Will Learn

  • The vision and mission of the Center for Sustainable Polymers
  • How we have been able to successfully convert renewable resources into both monomeric and polymeric products
  • How we have integrated next generation feedstocks, controlled polymerization processes, and hybrid polymer structures for the generation of advanced elastomers
