  • The Circular Economy model is a sustainable approach to production and consumption that emphasizes the importance of keeping resources in use for as long as possible, extracting maximum value from them, and reducing waste. Biopolymers are derived from natural sources and offer a promising solution to the plastic problem, which is a major contributor to environmental degradation. Disruptive technologies like 3D printing and Artificial Intelligence will support the transition to sustainable manufacturing. This course aims to explore the potential of biopolymers and technology in enabling the Circular Economy.
