Plastpol 2024 features an important conference. A sustainable approach to green transformation in polymer materials discussed during the Expo

05 april 2024
The growing need to introduce changes in the plastics industry and evolve towards sustainable production and effective recycling methods initiated the the Conferences and Networking Workshops for the academic and industrial milieus. The event prepared by TMBK Partners will take place on 22 and 23 May 2024 at Targi Kielce

The registration is open until April 30th on the website conference.green-composites.tech. Participation is free of charge.

The industry meeting at Targi Kielce under is held the banner of "Sustainable approach to green transformation in polymer materials" and discusses the following issues;

  • Green alternatives in the synthesis of polymers and polymer composites
  • Sustainable production of polymers and polymer composites
  • Plastic waste recycling and reuse
  • Management of polymer waste
  • Life cycle assessment of polymers and polymers composites
  • Enterprises' green transformation

The speakers' list at the conference held within the Plastpol expo in Kielce includes valued industry specialists. Ph.D. engineer Maria Kurańska, professor at the Krakow Tadeusz Kościuszko University of Technology's Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology, will discuss the implementation of circular economy principles in the synthesis of polyurethane foams.
