Realized in only one or a few atomic thicknesses, 2D materials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides, possess excellent properties that have drawn considerable interests over the last 10 years. The relevant research area is expanding at an impressive pace, encompassing everything from fundamental researches to industrial applications, from nano-electronic devices to large-scale aerospace applications, and so forth. Therefore, it is important to contemplate the future of these 2D materials from various perspectives. For this, we bring together Korean and European experts in 2D materials from both fundamental and industrial sectors and hear about the recent progress and the future directions.

Currently, human beings are consuming 13 TW of energy, in which 81% is based on combustion of fossil fuels. Along with the fast depletion of fossil fuels, the use of carbon-based fuels inevitably produces air pollution and greenhouse gases. To solve this conflict between energy demand and ecological issues, sustainable and clean technologies for energy production are required. Sun provides 171 000 TW energy on the surface of the earth, thus utilizing only 0.01% of it will be just enough to meet the whole need of energy by human beings. In this context, developing a system which can convert the photon energy to chemical or electrical energy is of great importance for the solar flux utilization. In this session we discuss about recent progresses on solar energy conversion materials, especially on organic/hybrid solar cells and artificial photosynthesis for solar fuel production. This session will be a great opportunity for knowledge sharing between multidisciplinary research fields and concerted networking among various scientists in energy and material science. Therefore we may provide new directions for development and research for the future energy technology.

Plastics are a ubiquitous material that is important in our economy and daily lives, with many functions that help solve various problems facing our society. Light and innovative materials are used in car or airplane materials to save fuel and reduce CO2 emissions, high-performance insulation reduces energy costs, and bio-compatible plastic materials combined with 3D printing can save human lives by enabling medical innovation. However, there is an urgent need to tackle the environmental problems of use and consumption, as the plastics are often harmful to the environment if they keep their current production, use, and disposal methods. Solving and improving these problems requires the efforts and cooperation of all major players, from plastics producers to recyclers, retailers and consumers. Also, we need to develop biodegradable plastics (polymer) that can be decomposed into new forms of nature through bold investment and research, and eliminate harmful environmental factors in plastics. Biodegradable polymers are collectively referred to as polymers that are self-degradable in vivo or in a natural environment and can be roughly classified into two types depending on their decomposition environment or usage. Most non-degradable polymeric materials currently available have many problems in disposal. A biodegradable material is a material having functional and physical properties similar to a petroleum-based synthetic polymer, but decomposes by microbial activity after disposal and ultimately converted into water and carbon dioxide. Primarily, biodegradable polymers which is decomposed in soil or natural environment is utilized as an eco-friendly material in various fields ranging from general merchandise in automobile industry, civil engineering material, and disposable bag. Since biodegradable polymers are decomposed by microorganisms and moisture in soil, similar to natural materials, they are new materials that do not harm the environment, and their significance has been greatly emphasized from the point of view of environmental protection. Thus, biodegradable polymers can be considered to have a great potential for industrial applications based on two keywords, medical and eco-friendly. In this session, issues from the emerging materials will be overviewed and discussed with related technologies including biodegradable polymeric materials. In addition, we will discuss the policy and trend related to biodegradable polymers in Europe and China, research trends, technological development prospects, and on insight in Europe to promote the biodegradable polymer market. *Key word: Bio- and Photo-degradable Plastic materials, Microbial Enzymatic Degradation, Eco-friendly and Non-harmful Plastics, Green Chemistry
