Bio-Degradable Polymers Applications:

Course Description: This course aims to provide participants with a comprehensive overview of biodegradable polymers, covering their chemistry, synthesis, properties, and applications. Moreover, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the environmental and economic benefits of biodegradable polymers, along with their potential to replace conventional polymers in various industries.

The course will explore a range of topics. Firstly, it will cover the formulation and processing techniques of biodegradable polymers. Then, it will delve into testing and quality control, as well as regulatory aspects of the industry. Additionally, it will examine emerging trends in biodegradable polymer research, such as 3D printing, energy storage, and water treatment.

By the end of the course, participants will acquire a thorough understanding of the science, technology, and applications of biodegradable polymers. Furthermore, they will grasp the regulatory and market factors driving their adoption. Consequently, they will be well-equipped to apply this knowledge in their own research, development, and commercialization efforts, thereby contributing to a more sustainable and circular economy.

Upon completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamental concepts of biodegradable polymers.
  • Describe the synthesis and characterization techniques of biodegradable polymers.
  • Analyze the various applications of biodegradable polymers in different industries.
  • Evaluate the environmental impacts of biodegradable polymers, including their ecotoxicity and biodegradation.
  • Understand the regulatory aspects of biodegradable polymers.
  • Identify the latest trends and emerging technologies in the biodegradable polymer market.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of chemistry and polymer science would be beneficial but is not mandatory.
