Resolving Anonymity of Plastic Materials Explored

The abstract of an October 18, 2022, Polymer Chemistry article by researchers with Australia Queensland University of Technology report: “… Resolving the anonymity of plastic materials is critical … we explore how contemporary polymer chemistry – in the form of sequence-defined polymers and their enormous information depth potential, fused with progress in law and governance research – has the potential to significantly impact design standards, consumer behaviour, recycling systems and extended-producer responsibility schemes for plastic waste. We submit that chemistry and law need to work together in a true transdisciplinary effort to effectively combat the critical issue of plastic pollution …” #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #Recycling #PolymerChemistry @QUT
