Dr. BK Sharma, Senior Research Engineer at ISTC, will give a short presentation on his research "Plastics to Oil," which uses pyrolysis to convert plastic bags into oil to potentially be used as fuel or lubricants. Then there will be a viewing of the 65 minute family friendly version of the movie "Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic?" The first 50 people will receive a reusable market tote made out of recycled plastic bottles.
