PlasticsEurope: New Engineering Thermoplastics Working Group Formed
A new Engineering Thermoplastics (ETP) Working Group has been formed within PlasticsEurope, the European trade association for plastics producers, to support and promote the benefits of the engineering thermoplastics (ETP) class of polymeric materials and their responsible use in industry.
According to Michael M. Koch, business unit director-Engineering Plastics Europe at DSM Plastics B.V. and the newly elected chair of PlasticsEurope’s ETP Working Group, engineering thermoplastics are a highly technical class of polymers that make very significant contributions to weight and energy reduction, environmental protection, safety, aesthetics, manufacturing efficiency, cost savings, recyclability, and performance improvements in virtually all areas of industry. The ETP Working Group has been formed to provide the technical support necessary for PlasticsEurope to be able to optimise communication of those benefits through all of its activities.
Founding member companies include Arkema SA, BASF SE, Bayer MaterialScience AG, Dow Europe GmbH, DSM Engineering lastics BV, DuPont de Nemours International SA, Evonik Röhm GmbH, Lanxess Deutschland GmbH, Rhodia SA, Solvay SA, Ticona GmbH, and Zaklady Azotowe & Ternowie Mosciskach SA.
