Innovations of Polymers

Studies indicate that an emerging threat faces our freshwater and marine ecosystems plastic pollution. Since plastics are cheap, versatile and strong and deliver significant societal benefits, it comes as no surprise that plastic production has increased exponentially since the 1960’s. If current practices continue as usual, by 2025 there could be 1 ton of plastic for every 3 tons of fish in the ocean. With the ability to persist for up to 4 centuries, plastic products are harming freshwater and marine ecosystems. We have to find the solutions to protect our planet.
