The second in the series of MATERIALS AND DESIGN EXCHANGE (MADE) workshops will be on the subject "Working with Nature - Green Design Polymers". To be held in London on Thursday 8th February, the workshop is aimed at presenting the opportunities and challenges associated with making plastics and plastic products more environmentally friendly. It will therefore encompass a wide range of subject areas, from biodegradable polymers to sustainable design and concludes with a presentation on where we are now with growing polymers, as well as other chemicals, as non-food crops.
