Sterilization of plastics and elastomers

In the medical and food packaging industry some products made of polymers need to be sterilized. This is quite a challenge as polymers are much less robust, when it comes to sterilization, than steel. The seminar focuses on the different types of sterilization available for polymers: Radiation, ethylene oxide (EO or EtO) and steam. The presentations will not only cover the technical side of the methods but also give a regulatory insight. Radiation is especially tough for polymers so an in-depth presentation will cover the theoretical background for this. A glance into the future is provided by the talk on Super Critical CO2 – an upcoming sterilization method.
In the coffee breaks there will be plenty of possibilities to network and catch up with old and new acquaintances.

After the seminar the participant will:

  • Know the pros and cons of the different sterilization methods for polymers
  • Be capable of estimating the challenges in actual/future sterilization of own polymer products

Target audience
The seminar is interesting for engineers in R&D or production who works with sterilization of polymers, now or in the future. With speakers coming from both industry and academia the seminar aims to attract people from both worlds.
