The EFSA has concluded that BPA does not pose a dietary risk to humans
At the upcoming Fakuma tradeshow, Covestro, is inviting questions and discussion about the much maligned chemical substance, Bisphenol A (BPA).
Bisphenol A (BPA) is one of the most thoroughly studied chemical substances and for decades has been used for the production of the high-performance plastic polycarbonate, among other things. Nevertheless, public opinion regarding its use as a raw material remains divided.
Covestro, formerly Bayer MaterialScience, says it “welcomes this debate” and is inviting Fakuma 2015 visitors to its stand for discussions.
"We would like to provide customers and visitors the desired information about BPA and to answer their questions,” said Dr. Sven Gestermann, Global Product Steward Polycarbonates at Covestro and Chairman of the Polycarbonate-BPA Product Group at PlasticsEurope, the association of plastics manufacturers in Europe.
“One of our aims in this is to help make the discussion more objective.” He and Markus Krieter, Marketing Manager for Polycarbonate in the regions Europe, Middle East and Africa and Latin America, will be available at the Covestro stand (Stand 4206) in Hall B4.
