Polymers have become an integral part of our everyday lives. Whether as high-performance plastics in aviation and the automotive industry, as functional and construction materials for electric devices, or in everyday objects such as packaging and clothing, polymers can be found everywhere in our modern world.

But what are the costs? Plastic waste, maritime pollution and microplastics are now ubiquitous problems that need to be solved. There are efforts by NGOs but also by science and industry to get these problems under control. What is the status quo, what are the approaches for the future and do the benefits of plastic usage outweigh the disadvantages?

The Symposion is designed to foster exchange and discussion on the topics of public perception, sustainability, recycling as well as advantages and disadvantages of the use of plastics. The focus themes are complemented by ethical views and a look at other materials and their recycling strategies as well as open discussions on the issues and sustainable concepts for the future.

The 59th Tutzing Symposion is organized by the Subject Division Polymers of ProcessNet (an initiative of DECHEMA - Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology and VDI-GVC – Division Chemical and Process Engineering of the Association of German Engineers. It will again provide a unique platform and ample time to exchange ideas between leading scientists and decision makers.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the virtual venue.

The Subject Division Polymers of ProcessNet is pleased to invite you to 59th Tutzing Symposion - "Polymers for a better life and circular economy" from 25 - 27 October 2021 taking place as online event.
