20200206 The 13th NANO/SPE joint seminar

The 13th NANO/SPE joint seminar

We hold the 13th NANO/SPE joint lecture meeting by Nanostructured Polymer Research Association and SPE Japan Section with the following contents. The joint lecture consists of materials development fields to control the structure at the nano level and to improve the characteristics and grasp the latest trends in both fields in the field of aiming at new functions and productivity improvement by polymer molding processing. The aim is to promote mutual collaboration and technological integration. We focused on bioplastic from the chemical industry and polymer that contributed to the future vision that was very popular at last year's joint lecture. In this issue, we planned topics related to recent technological development trends and ISO status in industry and academia. Researchers related to the material design field and polymer fabrication process field will participate and I hope that it will be a good opportunity to deepen further mutual exchange and exchange with researchers in the future.

12:50~13:00 Greeting Phd. Toshio Nishi
        (President of Research Association of Nano Structured Polymer)
13:00~14:00 「Future Perspective of Introduction of Bioplastics in Japan」
        Japan Bio Plastics Association(JBPA) Phd. Masatoshi Yoshida
Since the target was set to introduce 1.97 million tons of bioplastics by 2030, various strategies and plans have been formulated one after another, such as "Roadmap for Popularizing Development and Introduction of Marine Biodegradable Plastics" (May 2019), "Plastic Resources Recycling Strategy" (May 2019), "Action Plan against Marine Plastic Waste" (May 2019), and "Bio Strategy 2019" (June 2019). At the moment, full-fledged efforts are currently being made, such as a scheduled formulation of "Roadmap for Introducing Bioplastics." On this occasion, the present situation of the development of practical methods are introduced, and the prospect and challenges toward the future popularization of marine biodegradable plastics are outlined.

14:00~15:00「Development of marine biodegradable plastics :
current status and future perspective」
       GUNMA UNIVERSITY Prof. Kenich Kasuya
Biodegradable plastics attract attention as a solution for environmental issues caused by plastic wastes. Meanwhile, biodegradable plastics have some drawbacks that should be improved. I will talk about current status and future perspective on biodegradable plastics.

15:10~16:10  「Non-phosgene polycarbonate production process using by-product CO2 as starting
Asahi Kasei Corporation Phd. Masahiro Tojo
Asahi Kasei Corp. (Japan) successfully developed a new green process for polycarbonate (PC) from CO2 for the first time in the world and commercialized it at Taiwan in 2002 (50 kt/y). The conventional PC process uses phosgene and a very large amount of CH2Cl2 and water as solvents. Phosgene is notoriously toxic and corrosive, while CH2Cl2 is a mutagenic agent. It also needs costly waste water treatment. Asahi Kasei's process is not only green, but also produces PC of higher quality at lower costs than other processes. PC Production capacity of licensees reached 790 kt/y in 2018 (3rd share in the world).
16:10~17:10  「Biodegradable Plastics to Solve the Ocean Contamination by Plastics
- The age for practical use of poly(lactic acid) (PLA) will be coming soon -」
The Society of Polymer Science, Japan Fellow Phd. Masatsugu Mochizuki
Recent years, biodegradable plastics have been focused upon attention to solve the ocean contamination by plastics. Especially, poly (lactic acid) (PLA) has been highlighted as a bio-based biodegradable plastic with a low carbon footprint for the next generation. PLA is biodegradable when exposed in natural environments such as in soil or in sea water, and is compostable under very specific conditions of high temperature and high humidity, typified by the conditions for composting. In this lecture, the primary properties, biodegradation mechanism, technical developments for high performance, applications and business updates of PLA will be reviewed.

15:50-16:50  " Structure analyses of the mixture of thermoplastic elastomers having different symmetry in stretching process "

  ZEON, Co.     Mr. Atsushi Takayanagi

Abstract: We developed a thermoplastic elastomer by blending symmetric and asymmetric SIS block copolymer. This polymer blend is promising as an elastic film because it has superior physical properties, such as high modulus and recoverability, compared to symmetrical SIS homopolymers which have been used as adhesives. In order to elucidate the reasons for such excellent physical properties, its structure was investigated by time-resolved small angle X-ray scattering, transmission electron microscope observation, and SCF simulation in stretching process. In the film made by pressing close to industrial processing, the characteristic structural change of the styrene domain was observed with time-resolved small angle X-ray scattering. Furthermore, it was also found that the processing conditions have a strong influence on the phase separation structure.

The 18th Nanostructured Polymer Exchange Meeting

The Nanostructured Polymer Research Group holds a two-day training camp every year. In this fiscal year, we will hold tour and lecture at the Ricoh Environmental Business Development Center as an exchange meeting of the Nanostructure Polymer Research Group. The Ricoh Environmental Business Development Center was established as part of the 80th anniversary project, and centered on environmental management(three functions : 1 [create] new environmental business, 2 [continue] reuse / recycle center, 3 [attractive] environmental communication). In this time, we will give an overview of the center and visit the open laboratory in the Ricoh Environment Business Development Center. We hope that this tour will help your research and development. Also, there is a keynote lecture on 3D printers from Mr. Taizoh Sakaki of Ricoh, and I expect it to be extremely useful for members engaged in plastic materials and molding processing. With the participation of many people, we expect the further activation of the Nanostructured Polymer Research Group.

20190513 The 53rd Nanostructured Polymer Institute

The 53rd Nanostructured Polymer Institute

 In recent years, the weight and size of electric and electronic devices including automobiles have been reduced, and "heat" measures have been demanded from the viewpoint of long-term reliability.  At this lecture, we focused on heat, heat and other heat, and planned topics on recent research and development trends in polymer materials. Mr. Oyama of Yokohama National University will introduce the research results of toughening of thermosetting resin by in situ polymerization method.  In addition, Mr. Takezawa of Hitachi Chemical will explain methods (high-order structure control, covalent bond density) to increase the thermal conductivity of insulating polymers and their examples.

Thank you so much for your participation.
