Forum Plastic Recyclates: Mechanical recycling for sustainable plastics diversity

How can high-quality recyclates be produced from printed packaging? Can analytical fingerprints advance a circular plastics economy? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed at the fifth “Forum Plastic Recyclates” event to be held on March 29 and 30, 2023. Addressing topics such as the “recycling market and recycling standards”, “improved quality thanks to additives” and “applications for recycled plastics”, this year’s forum will focus once again on the field of mechanical recycling. The program and online registration form are now available.

  The “Forum Plastic Recyclates” will host discussions on a variety of topics, including ways in which recycled plastics can be used. Recyclate stabilizers are, for example, a puzzle piece in the compounding of plastics

Sharing knowledge in the international plastics industry

The Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF is hosting the fifth plastic recyclates forum on March 29 and 30, 2023 in Darmstadt. The conference in English, will allow participants to communicate at an international level and will bring together representatives from plastic manufacturers, plastic processors, and recycling providers, as well as user industries such as the automotive, white goods, construction, and packaging industries.

The main topics are additives and stabilizers for the circular economy of plastics. Top-class lectures on the analysis of recyclates, compatibilizers and modifiers, as well as masterbatches and compounds offer an excellent opportunity for a knowledge update that keeps participating companies competitive in the market.

In addition to case studies on innovative approaches of leading companies, the focus will be on technical discussions with experts from industry and science.

 

At the interface between science and industry

As an applied research institution and impartial source for information, Fraunhofer LBF acts as an interface between science and industry, and plays a leading role in the research landscape, particularly in the field of recyclates. Through hosting numerous technology conferences and industry working groups, the Darmstadt-based research institute has held a strong position in the plastics industry for many years and, as such, in 2022 took over from Hanser Verlag this distinguished event as an experienced, well-established partner. Hanser Verlag continues to support the conference in an advisory manner.
