About this event

The Editorial Board of ICE Science journal Green Materials warmly invites you to attend to the second annual Green Materials Research Symposium, Monday 12 December 2016 at the ICE, Westminster, London, UK. This one-day event will provide a forum to discuss and inspire inter-disciplinary, innovative research based on reducing the use of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture and application of chemical and material products. Chemists, engineers and materials scientists from both research and industry are invited to register. The event will be sponsored by Macro Group UK.

Plenary speakers

  • Professor Richard Gross, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
  • Dr Frederik Wurm, Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research
  • Professor Michael Meier, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
  • Professor Christophe Weder, Adolphe Merkle Institute, University of Freiburg

  • Environmentally benign processing and manufacturing of materials
  • Sustainable materials engineering

Polymers

  • Synthesis, development, rheology and application of renewable and / or biodegradable polymers
  • Environmentally benign methods for polymer synthesis
  • Nanocomposites.

We particularly welcome contributions from graduate students and post-doctoral researchers in this field. Up to five £50 bursaries are available to graduate students presenting posters or talks at this event.
