Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. Polyethylene and polypropylene are the synthetics champions. These inert, food-friendly and easy-to-recycle materials make up more than half of our plastic world. They are economic to produce, the scale of production is enormous and offer security of supply along with diversification in hundreds of different grades. But it is not just a matter of quantity that underlies their popularity. Quality is also a key component. The properties of polyethylene and polypropylene make them exceptionally well suited for the processing to all kinds of packaging, from wraps to bags and from crates to bottles and vessels. The intrinsic absence of foodcontamination risks plus their substantial strength makes them safe in many important respects.This course is designed to present the structure, morphology, and properties of polyethylene and polypropylene synthesis. It focuses on synthetic advances, the use of additives, polyolefin blends, composites and fibers, and surface treatment, including a discussion of the problem of interfacial and superficial phenomena. The course considers both the primary industrial and more novel routes of synthesis. It examines new additives, including stabilizers, nucleating and clarifying agents, fillers and reinforcements, and coupling agents. It also describes thermodynamic properties of polyethylene and polypropylene solutions, explains functionalized and controlled lifetime polyolefins and more. The Polyethylene and Polypropylene manufacturing process covered by this course use ethylene and propylene feedstocks from refinery crackers to produce polyethylene or polypropylene. No other feedstocks sources will be discussed.
