Composites UK’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Claire Whysall, said: “We are excited to be working with BPF for an eighth year running on the latest edition in our Thermoplastic Composites event series. We are continuing with the theme of net-zero, this year looking at the role thermoplastic composites have in the renewable energy sector, as they have an important role to play in meeting Government set net-zero objectives.”

Rob Mills, Head of Media and PR at British Plastics Federation added: “We are pleased to be delivering this Thermoplastic Composites event in partnership with Composites UK once more. This event will highlight materials-related innovations from renewable energy technologies and will also equip companies involved in thermoplastic composites with potential ideas to refine production processes.”

Thermoplastic Composites 2023 is aimed at senior and middle managers from Thermoplastic Composites companies from all sectors and all parts of the UK.
