Circular economy: challenges and opportunities for the adhesives and sealants industry

2020.09.23

Venue: Virtual Event
Date: 2020.09.23
Hours: 9am to 3pm
Duration: 6 hours
Organiser: TECNALIA
Price: €100 + VAT

Increasing environmental regulations and heightened public concern have motivated the polymer industry to move towards more environmentally friendly processes. Emulsion polymerisation is currently one of the most widely used green strategies for obtaining adhesives.

Water-based processes are mainly used in petroleum-based chemistry (methyl methacrylate, butyl acrylate, 2-ethylhexyl acrylate). In the long term, this is not a sustainable approach as the cost and supply of raw materials is directly related to oil pricing and availability.

Over recent years, TECNALIA has been working on the search for alternatives based on organic monomers, which are becoming more relevant both in academic and industrial terns. A reduced carbon footprint results in lower environmental impact of their production.

The event will be divided into three blocks

  • Block I: New strategies for a circular economy
  • Block II: Technological bonding solutions with sustainable adhesives  

1pm TECNALIA – Dr. Raquel Rodríguez  / Bio-based aqueous polymer systems  

  • Block III: Sustainable Additives / Products
