CONFERENCE PREVIEW | PERFORMANCE POLYPROPYLENE


Company in Iran. And this session will be brought to a close with a look at the use of polypropylene and polyethylene as engineering materials by Oscar Brocades Zaalberg, Managing Director at BPO BV in the Netherlands.


Attendees at Performance Polypropylene 2018 were drawn from 20 countries, making it a truly international event. Source: AMI


polypropylene building blocks that will serve technical compounders in the automotive industry. The next session moves the focus on to modify- ing and enhancing the mechanical properties of polypropylene.Dr Warren Ebenezer, Research Manager for Polymer Applications at SI Group, will start the session with a presentation investigating novel antioxidant solutions for polypropylene requiring enhanced colour performance. Dr Dimitrios G Papageorgiou, Research Associate at the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester, then follows with an examination of hybrid, graphene-reinforced multifunctional polypropylene nanocomposites. Then Dr Camillo Cardelli, Chemist in the Materials Division at IPOOL in Italy, will present a new solution for halogen-free flame-retardant polypropylene compounds. The flame retardant theme continues with a


presentation on development of environmentally- friendly flame retardants for polyolefins by Morteza Zare, Senior Polymer Researcher in the Compounding Section at Marun Petrochemical


Open discussion Day One will be rounded off with an interactive panel discussion that will focus on the future of polypropylene and the latest developments and trends. Panellists include: Dr Adam Galambos, Director of Technology at Washington Penn in Slovakia; Paul Vickers, Senior Project Engineer at Honda in the UK; and Daniele Gallo, EU Chemi- cals and Resins Commodity Manager at Electrolux in Italy. Attendees will have the opportunity to join in the discussion by posing questions and engag- ing with panellists. The day will close with some informal networking over drinks and canapés. Day Two opens with an insight into new applica-


tions. Manfred Bachtrod, Application Develop- ment Engineer at Borealis in Austria, will pose a highly topical challenge for the industry: How can we make appliances more sustainable? He will be followed by Tim Vroman, Technology Manager at Beaulieu Fibres International in Belgium, who will present details of a new generation of high tenacity polypropylene fibres for lightweight geotextiles. Dr Robert Brüll, Group Manager, Material Analytics at Fraunhofer LBF in Germany opens the final session of the conference with an examination of how analytics can be used as a tool for develop- ment of high-performance polypropylene. He will be followed by Dr Cornelia Tranninger, Group Leader Flexible Polymers at Borealis Polyolefin in Austria, who will present an insight into some innovative polypropylene polymer developments based on non-phthalate Ziegler-Natta catalysts. And the conference will be brought to a close by Marco Bernsdorf, Business Development Manager of Lotte Chemical, who will detail some of the company’s latest polypropylene projects.
