The Society of Plastics Engineers' (SPE) Annual Technical Conference (ANTEC®) 2023 will focus on the latest advances in industrial, national laboratory, and academic work in plastics and composites. The conference is organized around four main themes: Advances in Materials and Characterization, Sustainability, Polymer Processing and Equipment, and Digitalization and Additive Manufacturing.
"Tunable Plastic Durability: Potential Solutions to Accumulating Post-Use Plastic"
WEDNESDAY, March 29 | 2 p.m.
Don't miss Chris White, Ph.D., as he gives a presentation covering applications for polymer and plastic materials such as food safety, medical sterilization, and renewable energy. Dr. White will also discuss the post-use pathways for plastic, including recycling and conversion of plastic to fuel. He will also explore a new solution to the plastic waste problem, tunable durability.
Don't miss the chance to connect with other members of our team, including Hilda Buss, Ph.D., P.E., and Erin Askounis, Ph.D., and attend Exponent's speaker presentations (select details and links below):
- Sven Behrens, Ph.D., "Capillary Foams: Opportunities for New Composite Materials," Wednesday, March 29, 8:00 a.m.
- Manuel Garcia-Leiner, Ph.D., "Characterization of Polyaryletherketone (PAEK) Filaments and Printed Parts Produced by Extrusion-Based Additive Manufacturing," Wednesday, March 29, 8:30 a.m.
