Technical Forum 9 - Innovation in Products

20 Sep 2023
Auditorium 5
F09 - Innovation in Products

The goal of further developing a circular economy requires a forward-looking determination of the underlying plastics and their compatibility with this goal in the case of plastic-based and plastic-containing products. Also of growing importance for the future material spectrum will be possible recycling processes (e.g. pyrolysis, hydrogenation, etc) and the development of new polymers. The forum will address both aspects and how they will influence the future product spectrum of the petrochemical industry and their impact on the operation of refineries.
