This edition of the Plastics Advisor TOE profiles innovations in plastics for the healthcare, automotive, aerospace, building and construction, and packaging industries. The innovations include an eco-friendly plastic composite as alternative to steel in high-strength applications, fire retardant plastic for aircraft interiors, recycled plastic for road construction, and a packaging tray developed from recycled ocean plastics.
Plastics Advisor TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights of various plastics and composites and also analyses their impact across various industries.
The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and their impact and applications across industries.
Keywords: Plastic composite, fire retardant plastic, aircraft interiors, ocean plastics
