Call for Abstracts – The 11th International Symposium on Feedstock Recycling of Polymeric Materials (ISFR)

The Center of Excellence on Petrochemical and Materials Technology together with Chulalongkorn University’s Department of Chemical Technology (Faculty of Science), the Petroleum and Petrochemical College, and Research Association for Feedstock Recycling of Plastics (FSRJ) (Japan) cordially invite all interested to join the “11th International Symposium on Feedstock Recycling of Polymeric Materials (ISFR)” on November 29 – December 2, 2022 at Nongnooch Garden Pattaya, Chonburi, Thailand.  The event will be one of the first carbon-neutral events to be held in Thailand. 

 The ISFR is a collaborative network of scientists and technologists worldwide, intent on sharing and exchanging ideas of feedstock recycling.  The group’s focus is on the up-to-date scenario of various processes (biochemical, chemical, and thermo-catalytic methods) of valorizing polymeric wastes (biomass, composites, plastics, etc.) into raw chemicals, fuels, energy sources, and other useful materials.  Efforts are made to facilitate the modern world to successfully manage the increasing amounts of polymeric wastes, while turning them into valuable products that eventually promote sustainability.  Moreover, the ISFR offers opportunities to establish further collaborations to discuss research activities in recycling in the future. 

This year, the symposium will bring together academic researchers and industrial experts across the world to brainstorm on recent developments in the fields of biomass, composites, and plastics waste conversion processes.   Besides reducing carbon footprint, waste minimization and energy management policies will also be highlighted to promote sustainability.
