Introduction

Master's Program in Resource Recovery – Polymer Materials for the Circular Economy

Polymer materials, including plastics and textiles, play a crucial role in our everyday lives. Therefore, the development of sustainable recycling methods and the creation of new polymer materials with minimal climate and environmental footprints are of utmost significance. If you aspire to explore this subject deeper and contribute to its progress, our Master's programme is designed specifically for you.

Our programme focuses on polymer materials and their integration into a circular economy. It includes the concepts of polymer recycling, reuse, biodegradation, and their ecological impact. Additionally, it explores the development of renewable biopolymers and polymers that align with circular economy principles.

Within the programme, there is comprehensive coverage of the production, applications, and properties of plastics, textiles, and composite materials. Special attention is given to the potential of utilising biologically derived raw materials for polymer creation and their subsequent biological breakdown. Another focus is on the recycling of polymers as well as on the development of composites from natural fibres. The educational curriculum also incorporates the learning of practical laboratory methods to foster fundamental skills in the processing of plastics, composite manufacturing and structural characterisation, and material property testing.
