Presentation

AIMPLAS is glad to announce that it will host the fourth edition of EcoFRam, an event promoted by the French Chemical Society (SCF) and which will take place on 22 and 23 May. During these two days, we will address topics such as the current situation and the latest advances and research in relation to eco-friendly flame retardants and additives.

Among the topics we will address are: eco-friendly flame retardant additives, bio-based and biodegradable flame retardant polymers and composites, global approach: recycling, ageing, end-of-life and circular economy, toxicity and environmental issues and fire safety regulations and ecological issues.
