      • Discover the content of the session: "Sustainable polymer materials for marine applications"

      • This session will discuss the current status and future prospects of replacing current marine materials, particularly polymers and composites, with more sustainable alternatives. Two aspects will be discussed:

        > First, the options for reducing environmental impact of structures such as floating vessels and their equipment, (boats, ships, buoys, fishing gear…), which can be recovered at the end of their service life, will be presented. In this case the choice of improvements includes thermoplastic composites which can be recycled and biosourced polymers and fibres which have lower footprints and can be composted.

        > A second set of applications concerns structures which either risk accidental loss or are deliberately abandoned after service. In this case the ideal material will be completely biodegradable and leave no trace, and the options are more limited. The session welcomes contributions on both aspects.
