The plastic heart of Europe's industrial renaissance: The role of fluoropolymers in revitalizing the EU's key industry sectors

In light of the increasing global competition across all markets there is a broad consensus between the Council, the European Commission and EU Member States that one of the key priorities for the future is to revitalize Europe’s industry sectors to generate growth and prosperity.

The new Industrial Policy Strategy presented by the Commission back in September aims to support the European industry to “stay or become the world leader in innovation, digitisation and decarbonisation”.

In this context it is the right time to give an overview on how many strategic industry sectors are interconnected with fluoropolymers and their essential role for a large number of key applications in our modern societies.

The value of fluoropolymers is of vital importance for many key industries in Europe, like electronics, transport, chemicals & power, medical applications and renewable energy.

As an example, a high temperature, high chemical resistance seal in a car would be a rather small device but its correct performance is critical for the efficiency and cleanliness of the car.

EURACTIV invites you to this workshop to discuss current challenges and the way forward for Europe’s reindustrialisation by addressing questions as:

- What direction should Europe's reindustrialisation policy take?

- How can the fluoropolymer industry enhance a successful implementation of the industrial policy for the 21st century?
