Probing Innovations in Polymer Design, Waste to Wealth & Circular Economy

February 13-15, 2020

11th International Conference on Advancements in Polymeric Materials

CIPET with its inevitable presence in the main streams of Skill development, Technology support, Academics and Research (STAR), had initiated the International Conference on Advancements in Polymeric Materials, the APM series in 2010 with an aim of creating a technological platform. The themes of the conference are designed to cover all aspects of material development, synthesis & characterization, product design and prototype development in the field of polymeric materials. This forum would facilitate active exchange of knowledge, practical solutions and challenges of technologies with commercial potential.

The 11th chapter of the series, APM 2020, with the theme ‘Probing Innovations in Polymer Design, Waste management & Circular Economy’ is scheduled to be held in Bengaluru, the major R&D & Industrial Hub of India. ..

Best Poster Prizes (3 nos.) sponsored by ACS Applied Polymer Materials, ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering and ACS Omega and one year complimentary introductory ACS membership to the winners. 50% discount to the introductory ACS membership to all the conference attendees..


Central Institute of Plastics Engineering & Technology (CIPET), premier institution under Department of Chemicals & Petrochemicals, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Govt. of India, has earned global recognition in its diversified areas of Academics (short-term & long-term courses), Technology support and Research. With an objective of developing indigenous technologies and potentially industrial oriented research and innovations, CIPET established School for Advanced Research in Polymers (SARP) as R&D Units at three different locations, namely, Bengaluru (Advanced Polymer Design & Development Research laboratory - APDDRL), Bhubaneswar (Laboratory for Advanced Research in Polymeric materials - LARPM) and Chennai (Advanced Research School for Technology & Product Simulation – ARSTPS). The R&D units caters the Plastics & allied Industries in emerging areas, with specific focus on Material Development, Characterization, Technology Validation, Product Design and Development.
