ASC/KnowHow Webinar: Sustainable Macromolecular Materials and Manufacturing
Available as On-Demand Webinar / 1 Hour Presentation (including Q&A)
Speaker: Dr. Timothy Long / Cooperation with : ASC – Adhesives & Sealants Council
Live Webinar Held: 14 August 2019 (Wednesday)

This webinar will provide a platform for navigating the complexities of sustainable materials discovery ranging from advances in green chemistry to manufacturing processes that reduce waste and consume less energy. The content will be introductory in terms of defining key terms and leaders in the field, then advancing to specific research directions, life cycle analysis, and material flow analysis. Concepts related to bio-based materials, biomimicry, design for recyclability, chemical recycling, mechanical recycling, and opportunities for inovation across the continuum of innovation. The webinar will also focus on additive manufacturing platforms to demonstrate geometric complexity which reduces part weight but improves performance. Both instructors were previously employed in the chemical industry and hence will bring a vision for sustainability with a lens of potential commercial success. The content includes : # Introduction to the terminology of sustainability, green chemistry, and circular economy. # Discussion of life cycle analysis, energy consumption, and carbon capture; # Recent advances in sustainable materials discovery and engineering; # Future opportunities for research and innovation in sustainability
Speaker: Dr. Timothy Long
Tim received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Virginia Tech under the direction of Prof. James McGrath, and he subsequently joined both Eastman Kodak and Eastman Chemical companies for eight years upon graduation. He joined the faculty in the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Tech in 1999,where he also served as the Director of the Macromolecules Innovation Institute. Prof. Long joined the faculty of the School of Molecular Sciences at Arizona State University (ASU) in summer 2020 where he will launch and lead the Biodesign Center for Sustainable Macromolecular Materials and Manufacturing (BCSM3). In addition to over 400 peer-reviewed publications, his research awards include the 2020 Virginia Outstanding Faculty Award, 2015 Virginia Scientist of the Year, 2010 Virginia Tech Alumni Research Award, ACS PMSE Collaborative Research Award, Dalquist Award from the Adhesion Society, 2019 ACS Rubber Division Thermoplastic Elastomer Award, and the ACS POLY Mark Scholar Award. He has served as the Chair of the ACS Division of Polymer Chemistry, Chair of the Gordon Research Conference in Polymers, 2012 Chair of the IUPAC World Polymer Congress, and he currently serves as the Past-President of the Adhesion Society. He is a member of advisory boards for leading journals, and he was recently appointed as Editor-in-Chief of Wiley Polymer International. His research interests span structure-property-processing relationships for polymers with a focus on multiphase systems including ion-containing and hydrogen bonding containing block copolymers, biomaterials and hydrogels, sustainable polymers and processes, renewable feed stocks, and green chemistry. New monomer syntheses and polymerization processes have led to novel families of thermoplastic elastomers including controlled radical polymerization, living anionic polymerization, and the formation of segmented step-growth polymerization processes with a focus on polyurethanes and polyesters. His most recent research efforts address the need for tailored advanced macromolecules for advanced manufacturing (3D printing), including vat photopolymerization, direct-ink-write printing, selective laser sintering, powder bed fusion, and extrusion. This research has led to new families of engineering polymers, photo-reactive polymers, tissue scaffolds, and enzyme delivery systems. He has published in the area of drug/gene delivery and most recently focused on hydrogels for brachytherapy in oncology. This interdisciplinary research program has garnered approximately $50M in research funding from federal (NSF, NIH, DOE, PRF, and DOD) agencies and diverse international corporate sponsors.
