INVITATION: International Industry Fair (MIS): "Plastic is not the problem, it is the solution!"

We kindly invite you to visit us at the International Industrial Fair (MIS), which will take place from 5 to 8 April 2022 in Celje, Slovenia. The last day of the fair, Friday, April 8, 2022, will be dedicated to the plastics industry, where the main event will be organized by the Faculty of Polymer Technology and GIZ Grozd Plasttehnika in cooperation with SRIP MATPRO and SRIP Krožno gospodarstvo. The event will be held under the slogan Plastic is not a problem, it is the solution! and will be divided into four thematic sessions. Within these, the speakers will touch on the topics of trends, EU regulatory measures, trends and the current situation in the field of polymer industry, namely in the field of thermoplastic materials and technologies, composites and elastomers. We will also touch on the areas of recycling, biocomposites and modern characterization methods that can be used to reduce errors and optimize processes.
