Presentation Title : Reducing the Environmental Impact of Ocean Plastics Derived from Waste Paints

Abstract: Ocean plastics is a topic often in the news currently. The main focus seems to be plastic bottles, packaging waste, etc. However, the paint and coatings sector also have a role to play in reducing micro-plastics from our oceans. Dr. Naden will discuss the scale of the problem and provide an over view of the ideas to address this issue in the future.
