There are lots of developments in plastics & rubber as it relates to the “Circular Economy” and the concept of no leakage into the natural environments. The next generation of rubber technologists have to keep circularity front and center in designing and synthesizing new molecules and processes. This will be the subject matter of Ramani’s presentation.
