Join us on Wednesday November 22 to take part in the first phase of the Plastic Generations program, and help scientists at the University of Caen Normandy find a solution to plastic pollution.
The figures are alarming. 2 million tonnes of plastic produced in 1950, 234 million in 2000, 460 million today and, according to the OECD, between 800 million and 1.2 billion in 2060? All over the world, research teams are mobilizing to slow down, or even halt, the ?greatest pollution of all time?
In Caen, teams from the Food, Bioprocesses, Toxicology and Environment Laboratory (ABTE) are exploring the possibility of bioplastics reinforced with plant fibers such as flax. They are also seeking to better describe the life cycle of plastics currently used on a large scale, in order to reduce the ecological impact of their consumption by developing reuse, repair and recycling solutions.
You can help them achieve these goals by taking part in the "Plastic generations" participatory research program. Join us on Wednesday, November 22, 2023, from 2pm to 4pm, to find out more and get your imagination going!
