Track 1: Polymer Waste
Polymer recycling is a way to reduce environmental problems caused by polymeric waste accumulation generated from day-to-day applications of polymer materials such packaging and construction. The recycling of polymeric waste helps to conserve natural resource because the most of polymer materials are made from oil and gas. One of the useful properties of polymers is that they are unreactive, so they are suitable for storing food and chemicals safely. Unfortunately, this property makes it difficult to dispose of polymers. They are often buried in landfill sites or incinerated - burned.
Plastics have become widely used materials in everyday life due to their special properties such as durability, easy processing, lightweight nature, and low cost of production. However, because of their stable and nonbiodegradable nature, postconsumer plastics become an issue to the environment. The growing amounts of waste are generated, as plastic products are commonly used only once before disposal. The alternatives of practical techniques for solid waste management are redesign, reprocessing, and recycling. Thus, even recycling is not the most profitable technique for the treatment of plastic waste, and it should be constantly developed. The recycling of plastic waste helps to conserve natural resources due to polymeric materials being made from oil and gas. There are four main recycling methods: reuse, mechanical recycling, chemical recycling, and energy recovery. Mechanical recycling turns polymeric waste into new polymer products when energy recovery process releases the energy contained within plastics through combustion and chemical recycling converts waste polymers into feedstock for chemicals/monomers/fuels production.
Track 2: Polymer Waste Management
Increasing volumes of synthetic polymers are manufactured for various applications. The disposal of the used materials is becoming a serious problem. Unlike natural polymers, most synthetic macromolecules cannot be assimilated by microorganisms. Although polymers represent slightly over 10% of total municipal waste, the problem of nonbiodegradability is highlighted by overflowing landfills, polluted marine waters, and unsightly litter. Existing government regulations in Europe and anticipated regulations in the United States will greatly limit the use of polymers in large volume applications (packaging, water treatment, paper and textile sizing, etc.) unless acceptable means of waste management are available. Total management of polymer wastes requires complementary combinations of biodegradation, incineration, and recycling. Biodegradation is the most desirable long-term future solution and requires intensive research and development before it becomes practical. On the other hand, incineration and recycling can become operational in a relatively short time for the improvement of the situation at present and in the near future.

Importance & Scope:
Polymers are high weight molecules made of reposted chemical units called monomer. The property and quality of polymer depends upon the interaction bonds, additives, and length of polymer chain. Polymers are natural, as well as synthetic in nature. Natural polymers are DNA and proteins that are fundamental to biological structure. Synthetic polymers are manufactured by polymerization of many small molecules. Polymers can be classified as organic, inorganic and hybrid polymers. On the basis of type, the global polymer market is classified into thermosetting, elastomers, and thermoplastics. Among the various types, the thermosetting segment dominated the global polymer market.
Biopolymers can be sustainable, carbon neutral and are always renewable, because they are made from plant materials which can be grown indefinitely. These plant materials come from agricultural non food crops. Therefore, the use of biopolymers would create a sustainable industry. In contrast, the feedstocks for polymers derived from petrochemicals will eventually deplete. In addition, biopolymers have the potential to cut carbon emissions and reduce CO2 quantities in the atmosphere: this is because the CO2 released when they degrade can be reabsorbed by crops grown to replace them: this makes them close to carbon neutral. Biopolymers are biodegradable, and some are also compostable. Some biopolymers are biodegradable: they are broken down into CO2 and water by microorganisms. Some of these biodegradable biopolymers are compostable: they can be put into an industrial composting process and will break down by 90% within six months. Biopolymers that do this can be marked with a 'compostable' symbol, under European Standard EN 13432 (2000).Many types of packaging can be made from biopolymers: food trays, blown starch pellets for shipping fragile goods, thin films for wrapping.
The United States has consistently been the largest producer of plastic and the synthetic plastic market is engrained in the United States and world economy, but now the focus has been shifted to Bioplastics as plastics are having many adverse effects. The bioplastics market is miniscule in comparison to the plastics marketplace; however, bioplastics are gaining in capital and popularity. North America is the biggest market for biopolymers, consuming more than one-third of the total global demand for biopolymers.
Many institutions and departments in United States are encouraging the research for bioplastics. Departments such as Department of Defense (DOD), National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institute of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) , Department of Energy (DOE), Northwestern University, University of Akron etc. are involved in the research for Biopolymers and Bioplastics.
Various companies like Dupont, Cereplast , Metabolix , Natureworks LLC etc. are now a part of USA and their product services are entirely based on Biodegradable Plastics i.e., Bioplastics.
Apart from Research and Industrial point of view, Toronto is the most exciting and entertaining city in the world. Nowhere else you can find a city that has all the travel amenities that only a complete resort destination can offer. Toronto is a spectacular city, incomparable to any other. Everything that you would expect from a world-class metropolis, and more, is right here for your travel pleasure.
Toronto, the capital of the province of Ontario, is a major Canadian city along Lake Ontario’s northwestern shore.
