UT Professor Jennifer DeBruyn will present “How Plastic Feeds the World and How We Can Do Better” Friday, February 16

Jennifer DeBruyn, associate professor in the Department of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science, will present “How Plastic Feeds the World and How We Can Do Better” at the next UT Science Forum Friday, Februrary 16.

Plastic products have revolutionized agriculture and increased food production, yet have also led to a global pollution problem. Our current approach is unsustainable, but scientists are working on finding alternatives that won’t add to our plastic legacy.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, February 16 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
