Over 80 international experts gathered on 4th and 5th December in Brussels at the annual “Plasticisers Conference 2012” organised by Crain Communications and European Plastics News in association with European Council for Plasticisers and Intermediates (ECPI). The list of participants included representatives from private companies and trade associations as well as academics and policy-makers who looked at ways to improve the delivery of key scientific messages on safety and the benefits of using flexible PVC applications.
In this regard, ECPI’s General Manager, Maggie Saykali, commented that “the differentiation between the various phthalates is gaining understanding and acceptance. In the future, we have to consolidate what we have already achieved. We must continue working on our research, providing scientific and factual information to the stakeholders and speaking with one voice to promote the great benefits plasticisers and flexible PVC bring to the general public”.
