"Emissions and odours from materials"


Emissions and odours from materials 2015

Nowadays, air quality in confined spaces such as vehicles and buildings concerns more and more industries and scientists.

Plastic materials, coatings and inks, adhesives, flooring materials, furniture, textiles, insulating materials emit volatile organic compounds (VOC) that contribute to the ambient air quality in terms of odours and pollutants. In food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, the packaging can have an impact on the organoleptic perception of the products and even on their quality.

New consumer products coming today on the marketplace, such as e-cigarettes, have to be evaluated for their VOC release.

The need for communication between professionals working on this subject is obvious, particularly with respect to discussing research results, disseminating information, promoting activities …


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.

Technical programme

  • Standards and regulatory issues: updating EU-legislation (REACH, superdirective...) and labelling schemes.
  • Comfort and impact on health : IAQ, workplace environment, odours and VOCs, off-flavours...
  • Latest developments for measurement and evaluation: sampling, analysis and sensory evaluation.
  • 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...) in:
                • automotive industry
                • building industry
                • packaging industry.
