The 2019 Global Symposium on Waste Plastic—"Ecosystem Impacts, Remediation and Waste Management”—will take place September 19-20, 2019 in Lexington, Kentucky. Jeffrey Seay, PJC Board of Trustees Engineering Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Kentucky College of Engineering Extended Campus at Paducah will chair the conference along with Linda Wang from Purdue University.
The conference will focus on key themes in plastic manufacturing, recycle, reuse and disposal. Scientists, engineers and other stakeholders will discuss and share ideas, innovations and achievements for managing the waste plastic accumulation challenges facing both developing and developed countries. Sessions will integrate the recent achievements made by academia, government, industry and non-profit organizations to reduce, recover, reuse, recycle, redesign and remanufacture for the waste plastic supply chain.
Seay has taught at the UK Paducah campus since 2008.
