2021 – Another Year of Staying Connected

Today, 4 March 2021, it is exactly one year ago that we did not meet in Barcelona. After long deliberations late in February, the Board and organizing programme committee decided to pull the plug and postpone the Technical Seminar.

FINAT is accepting papers for the Technical Seminar 2022

How can we achieve sustainability in our industry? Is it really possible to comply with all the requirements and demands of brand owners? Is it also your perception that brand owners ask for one thing one month and then another next month (e.g. PLA from corn, then recycled material, then compostable, renewable, etc)? And is recycled material good for the circular economy? How can we go green(er)? All of these questions and more will be tackled next year by expert speakers. Send in your abstracts now!
