We would like to update your sector as one of the major downstream use sectors on the latest trends and activities that link our associations and industries. What’s new in Responsible Care and Product Stewardship? A comprehensive overview on available material on safe handling of solvents and the new ESIG Solvent Award will be given. Building on the EU Commission’s Circular Economy Package, we will position solvents in the debate and our life cycle assessment data collection.
The following points will be addressed and discussed with the audience:
- Application fields where solvents are beneficial/needed, and why
- Solvents in perspective of the circular economy and sustainability
- “Future-proof” solvents: prospects for solvents in adhesives and sealants in the coming ten years.
