TAPPAS: Tackling Plastic Pollution Along the Silk road

Jules Harings, PhD, assistant professor macromolecular physics and technology
Continuous access

Plastics are a threat to biodiversity and life on earth. To reduce plastic waste we need to look for an approach where materialtechnology and behavioural economics go hand in hand. Jules Harings will demonstrate how natural materials like silks are a source of inspiration to a techno-economic, circular model for packaging plastics, based on natural resources. Actuated by water these plastics will degrade in nature, while retaining functional expectations in operation.
