- Maria Teresa SCRIVANI
R&D project manager-Industrial research and Innovation at Proplast _Italy
She obtained her degree in Chemistry in 1996 at the University of Genova. She has been working in polymer companies (Basell Polyolefines, M&G polymers), as project manager in R&D area on different topics: polymer synthesis (PET, polyamide polyolefines) in lab scale and pilot plant; optimization of formulations vs. the final application and transformation technology (injection molding, extrusion, blow molding) using compounding techniques and reactive extrusion. At present, she is project manager of applied research projects on thermoplastic polymers focusing in compounding polymer formulation, plastic recycling, polymer synthesis, analytical methods development. She is co-author of 5 scientific papers and a patent.
