Plastribution to showcase sustainable materials at two day conference
Leading plastics raw materials distributor, Plastribution, will be holding a two day conference on 12 and 13 February, where it will present a number of key products from its sustainable materials portfolio, which was launched last November.
The free to attend event is being held at the Coombe Abbey Hotel, Warwickshire and will include representatives from some of the world’s most innovative sustainable material producers, who along with speakers from both Plastribution and the wider industry, will be providing specialist guidance in this rapidly changing field.
Plastribution’s sustainable portfolio has been largely developed in response to ongoing environmental concerns regarding plastic and the calls from designers, brand owners, OEMs and converters for solutions for a diverse range of applications. Based on material options from around 20 suppliers, the range is split over seven different categories: reduce your carbon footprint; biodegradable and compostable polymers; water soluble polymers; bio-sourced polymers; circular economy grades; recycled and recyclability, and; renewable content polymers.
Full details on the portfolio can be found at www.plastribution.co.uk/sustainable/. A dedicated sustainability team comprising of in-house experts has been assembled by Plastribution to support the initiative; its role includes researching material innovations, ongoing development of the product portfolio, educating staff and providing industry leading technical support where required.
Commenting on the forthcoming conference, Plastribution’s commercial director, Katherine White, said: ‘Since launch there has been significant interest in the portfolio and those suppliers showcasing their innovative products. The conference will allow us to look at several products in more detail, as well as discuss the complete sustainable materials landscape. And with the speaker line-up that we have, we are really excited to provide some substance to what is certainly a very challenging area.’
