5 & 6 octobre : Conference Certech - Emission and odours from materials - Save the date RSS Feed


Call for papers ! (until March 31st)

During the last two decades, there has been increasing concern within the scientific community over the effects of VOC exposure on health. Public awareness of environmental, health and safety issues related to air quality has grown significantly. Regulations and labelling of products have been promoted by the governments, resulting in ever more stringent specifications for the industry regarding the emission of volatile compounds from materials.
With the participation of leading industry professionals, standards & regulatory experts, R&D scientists, material specialists, industry analysts and market players, the conference offers an ideal platform for best practice sharing and acquiring new knowledge from participants and speakers.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract on the following topics:

• Standards and regulatory issues: updating EU, national legislation and labelling schemes.

• Comfort and impact on health : IAQ, workplace environment, odours and VOCs, off-flavours...

• Latest developments for measurement and evaluation: sampling, analysis, sensory evaluation, monitoring.

• Remediation: optimisation of manufacturing and compounding processes, storage and transport conditions, new barrier properties...

• Recent developments: new OEM requirements, latest trends, new products (low-VOC products, new additives formulations, biobased materials, recycled materials...) in:

-    automotive and transportation industry

-    building industry ( materials for indoor application, ventilation, IAQ)

-    packaging industry (food & beverage, cosmetics, water pipes, pharmaceutics)

-    consumer products (household products, electronic devices, toys)
