Technical Focus

The Bioplastics and Renewable Technologies Division provides a unified forum for promoting open exchange of scientific and engineering knowledge related to polymeric materials that are fully or partially biobased with a “Cradle-to-Cradle” emphasis. Areas of interest include synthesis, characterization, processing, structure-property relationships, degradation, product design and development, application development, modeling, regulations and compliance, and life-cycle analyses. To achieve its objectives, the Division collaborates closely with other interested technical divisions of SPE and organizations to coordinate the dissemination of knowledge and understanding of bioplastics through appropriate channels.
