International Akademie Fresenius Online Workshop "Sustainable Food Contact Materials"

Overview Programme Speakers Venue Prices & Services

Overview

This online live workshop – consisting of two half-day sessions – will explain the recyclability of other food contact materials (FCM) next to PET – including the different procedures and the consequences for safety evaluation. It will also focus on FCM from renewable raw materials like products made of wood and other natural materials. The agenda includes presentations from authorities, the scientific sector and the industry.
