A new edition of the Fire-Retardant plastic conference is coming, organised by PINFA and AIMPLAS, this time online.

The aim of the conference is to present the latest advances and future trends in fire-retardant plastics. The circular economy will be one of the central themes, as well as advances in flame retardants from renewable resources. The event will be divided into three sessions addressing the major challenge of flame retardancy in plastics, including recyclability within the European Strategy for Plastics and the Circular Economy and new developments in flame retardant bioadditives.

All presentations will be in English.
