RPM - Responsible Plastic Management has teamed up with the PPRC in Queen’s University Belfast to create a strategic link between research and organizations engaged in the Responsible Plastic Management Program.

Established in 1996, PPRC is a world renowned centre of excellence in polymer research and development. Research staff in the centre work side by side with industrial and academic partners from across the world. The partnership will support an array of polymer applications including; identification of new technologies, improving recycling rates, novel polymer design, exploring the functionality and applications for recyclates.

RPM engages organizations of all sizes and from all sectors. This diverse set of businesses have one thing in common – to make a positive change in the way plastic is managed. Finding solutions for the reduction, re-use and recycling of plastic will require innovation in design, polymer material research and piloting new processes that can ensure solutions are fit for purpose.

RPM is delighted to have the PPRC as a support partner and looks forward to working together on exciting projects.
