HOME

The National Graduate Research Polymer Conference is an important and impactful tradition provided by the American Chemical Society Polymer Chemistry Division (ACS POLY) since 1994. POLY established a national conference series focused for polymer science and engineering graduate students. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for graduate students to present their work, to network, and to interact with working polymer scientists in academia, industry, and government.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY

NGRPC2020 is committed to emphasizing the growing importance of sustainability throughout all facets of our conference. It is our mission to reduce waste, energy consumption, and unnecessary usage of natural resources to reduce our environmental impact while providing a platform to celebrate interdisciplinary polymer research.

  • recycling at conference venues
  • solar powered trash compactors (across campus)
  • water stations - reusable NGRPC2020 water bottles will be provided
  • no individual packaging (for condiments etc.)
  • reusable utensils at banquet
  • low emission transportation options (bike and scooter app)
  • energy saving lights
  • 50% of the mugs/cups at conference will be reusable
  • going paperless with conference app (no physical programs!)
