Abstract of the session

Plastics are new generation materials; a wide range with highly tune-able property profile. However, their usages are often perceived to be adversarial to the environment. This possibly is due to our limited understanding of this new generation of materials. While demand for plastic keeps rising to support the needs of a growing population with higher affluence, the waste generated has logically drawn the attention of regulators and public at large across the globe. In this session various recycling technologies and plastic waste management systems would be explored.

It is an attempt to view plastics through the lens of sustainability.
