This multi-disciplinary workshop brings together researchers with interests in how plastic behaves as a sedimentary material. Understanding how, where and when plastics are transported, break down and accumulate in the natural environment requires sedimentary geoscience research to be integrated with contributions from material scientists, chemical engineers and chemists, experimentalists, fluid dynamicists and biologists.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies is available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date.
There will be a poster session on Monday 18 March 2024.
