Due to an increasing number of regulations targeting environmental protection and sustainability, new technologies and best practices have to be adopted by manufacturers and users of polymer products worldwide. This course aim to introduce alternative polymer materials, assesses respective changes to polymer processing technologies and outlines quality control measures that are of emerging interest given this global trend towards sustainability.
Advanced sustainable polymer processing solutions are essential and applicable across a wide range of industry sectors. The course imparts concepts of sustainability and methods of assessing and reducing environmental impact and carbon footprint.
Participants will be exposed to an immersive learning environment, guided by polymer-based material and process case studies based on SIMTech’s long-standing expertise and industry support across a wide range of polymer processing technologies.
The course content will enable polymer product developers and manufacturers to make informed choices based on existing market-ready materials and processes, as well as emerging solutions, to achieve higher levels of sustainable manufacturing.
The course is delivered through a combination of lectures and hands-on practical sessions to better equip participants with knowledge and skills to optimise state-of-the-art polymer-based manufacturing processes for reduced environmental impact. Case studies and project work form an integral element of the course structure in training the participants to make informed decisions and implement real-life processing solutions
