Encapsulation for Industrial Applications

Scientific Session 4

Date/Time: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM


This session focuses on advances in encapsulation and controlled release products in agrochemicals, agriculture, aquaculture, textiles, and other industrial applications. Topic areas include, but are not limited to, more efficient biomass production for biofuels, genetic engineering (release of genetically engineered materials, enhancing organisms), anticorrosive and/or antifouling coatings (e.g., fish farms or offshore installations), self-healing coatings and materials (e.g., textiles), water storage systems, technologies for high-rise systems (fertilizing, light control), and more traditional areas involving controlled release of nutrients, vaccines, fertilizers, and pesticides.
