Plastic waste is currently generated at a rate approaching 400 million tons per year, leading to significant environmental concerns. The vast majority of plastics produced today are derived from fossil oil, natural gas, and coal, and are practically non-degradable. Bioplastics are an innovative solution to reduce the environmental impact of plastic waste. Unlike conventional plastics, bioplastics are made from renewable resources. They are also biodegradable, meaning they can break down into natural materials without causing harm to the environment. In this event, we will present novel approaches to bioplastic production, including a grade of polylactic acid unattainable by the currently used catalysts, natural polyesters produced by fermentation, and the conversion of jellyfish into useful plastic materials.
In this event, we will explore this fascinating field, presented by 3 leading researchers from Tel-Aviv University.

Opening remarks Ramot’s CEO, Keren Primor Cohen.
Moderated by Dr. Noam Greenspoon, VP, BD, Physical Sciences.
Three projects will be presented by:
› Prof. Moshe Kol
› Prof. Alexander Golberg
› Prof. Shachar Richter
Each technology will be presented for about 10-15 min,
The event will last for approximately one hour.
A zoom link to the virtual roundtable will be sent to your email upon registration.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
