This year again, Marc Guerre, researcher in the P3R team at the IMRCP laboratory, participated in the "Flash Sciences" session, as part of the event entitled Un dimanche au bord du lac.

Organised by the Quai des Savoirs, the Museum and cultural centres in Reynerie and Alban-Minville, this event is an essential part of the Science Festival and took place on Sunday 9th of October 2022 from noon to 7pm at the Parc de la Reynerie. An eclectic cultural program was planned for a large audience throughout this friendly day, with exhibitions or artistic installations, meetings with scientists, workshops, games, animations and shows. For this 11th edition, current topics such as nature in town, ecology and climate were in the spotlight.

From 2pm to 3pm and again from 4pm to 5pm, Marc explained  in a simple way and in 10 min, the research being carried out on the recycling of plastics that were not previously recyclable.
