Polymers for Sustainable Future 2024

24 - 28 June 2024, Prague, Czech Republic

The Polymers for Sustainable Future 2024 conference, which will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, 24–28 June 2024, reflects current global problems and challenges in the field of polymers and plastics in relation to the environment.
The goal of the conference is to bring the latest scientific findings in the field of polymer materials reflecting the current global problems associated with the sustainability of polymers and plastic pollution of the Earth.The conference combines two traditional scientific meetings, the 85th edition of Prague Meeting on Macromolecules (PMM) and the 11th edition of the Green Chemistry and Nanotechnologies in Polymeric Materials (GCNPM).
We strongly believe that this joint event will enable a fruitful and intensive scientific discussion leading to new collaborations and innovative solutions in the field of sustainable polymers.

  • Biobased monomers and polymers, natural polymers
  • Environmental degradation of polymers
  • Recycling and upcycling of polymers
  • Production design of sustainable polymers
  • Enzymatic reactions in macromolecular chemistry
  • Environmental-friendly polymerizations
  • Fixation of carbon dioxide into polymer materials
  • Dynamic networks, vitrimers
  • Sustainable solutions in polymer nanotechnologies
  • Global threat of plastic pollution (environmental analysis, ecotoxicity, technological solutions)
Style of the Conference:

The program will consist of oral presentations of invited as well as contributed lectures. Two sessions are planned for poster presentations.
