The Sustainable Polymer Framework seeks to holistically define a sustainable polymer. The intended use is for members of the NSF Center for Sustainable Polymers to be able to identify and explain how their individual research project meets this definition. The goal is to introduce an integrated systems-thinking approach that considers the interconnection of all criteria and their net impact across the environment, economy, and society.
This document is intended to be a framework by which members of the NSF Center for Sustainable Polymers can assess and explain their own research within the broader field of sustainable polymers.
The NSF Center for Sustainable Polymers is supported by the National Science Foundation (CHE-1901635).
