Hosted by SACMI - a member of the Association's governing council and scientific board - the day will bring together leading figures from the worlds of research, university and business, including technology users and providers alike.
Always at the forefront of advanced research into polymers - from both a scientific and technical-application perspective - AIM turns the spotlight on an area that is increasingly viewed as a ‘pillar’ of sustainability in rigid packaging.
The most abundant polymer of natural origin, cellulose is in fact sustainable by definition. No fossil fuels are needed to obtain it. Above all, at the end of their life cycles, cellulose-based products can be disposed of together with other compostable materials or fed into the paper recycling chain (depending on formulation).
