Conference on Plastics & Polymers Technology in India

Bioenvision present on the PPT Conference in India

-16th of December the Plastics & Polymers Technology Conference – Emerging opportunities of the future took place in India where we focused on our sustainable and green flame retardant solution D-PYRE® for better health and environment.

We brought insight about our green high-tech POSS additives in the fire-retardant market in India in several material areas.

Darya Zeine, R & D Manager

India market

The conference brought together participants from all over India including multinational companies as well as Tech Institutes. It facilitated the initiative of bringing together competence from the Industrial segment, researchers, experts, end-users, technology providers, government bodies, stakeholders, waste recyclers, chemical recyclers of plastics, retailers, and local authorities under one roof to discuss challenges, efficient solutions and presented the latest technology and developments to solve plastics & polymers usage limitations.

Green flame retardants
Bioenvision were present with Darya Zeini, Priti M, from our agent in India TheKVM and Espen Solberg. Darya, one of the conference speakers, presented Bioenvision’s recent R&D developments for POSS FR synergists (polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane). These are used as synergists (at < 1% loading) to improve char quality (silicon ceramification), accelerate char formation, and increase ignition time. The organic group on POSS enables tailoring for specific polymer, either as reactive or additive. In addition to demonstrated use in Polyurethane foams and thermoplastics (such as polypropylene and PVC), recent trials have shown effectiveness in adhesives. More tests are also in progress together with a PhD student from Czech Republic to investigate the efficiency in epoxy resins.

High-tech POSS additives
We work to bring insight about our high-tech POSS additives into the global fire-retardant market in several material areas. Together with our partners, we are on our way to replace hazardous and environmentally harmful chemicals with green and sustainable flame retardant solutions to protect life of young and old, properties and environment. In the PPI Conference new results in PU and PP, as well as the influence of the POSS additives in adhesives were well received. Targeting the global and Indian market of flame retardants and the goal of non-toxicity in the fire retardant-segment is an important element in order to contribute to a more healthier world. We find flame retardants all around us, in for example furnitures, cars, cables and construction materials. The purpose of flame retardants are imperative, but it must be linked with non-toxic raw materials and an increase propability to reuse producst.
