Speaker: Peter Halley

Theme: Modified starch polymers and blends for packaging, industrial and biomedical applications

Time: March 13, 10:00

Venue: Engineering Building A121

Organizer: School of Chemical Engineering

Abstract: This talk will highlight developments of bio based polymers at UQ. Specifically it aims to highlight that bio based polymers can be processed and have properties like conventional polymers, can be tailored to higher value, smarter applications and in this tailoring you must examine the sustainability of the entire product lifecycle rather than just biodegradability or end-use.

Professor Peter Halley is the Head of School of Chemical Engineering, University of Queensland. His research is in the area of sustainable, biobased materials and polymers, and he operates at the translational research interface between universities and industry. He is a professor in chemical engineering, a chief investigator in the Queensland Advanced Materials Processing and Manufacturing (AMPAM) Centre, an affiliate professor in the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) as well as a Fellow of both the Institution of Chemical Engineers and the Royal Australian Chemical Institute.
