Safety Harbor, United States

Event Type: Conference

Subject(s): Organic Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering


Event Description

The use and development of materials from renewable sources is not a new concept, and there are many examples in history of the use of renewable materials to prepare primitive tools, clothes and shelter. As the complexity of human requirements increased, so did the materials and by the 19th century durable materials were being prepared from renewable resources such as vulcanized rubber and adhesives from starches and other natural resins. However, the widespread use of these materials was diminished in the 20th century with the development of fossil fuel derived leading to the polymer renaissance. In the following decades, coal and petrol-based polymers could be found in nearly every item we touched, e.g., clothing, packaging, paints, adhesives and plastics.
