15:00 - 15:45


Explore the latest in medical polymers: Join IOM3’s free webinar on 28 February to learn about PVC and other plastics with PVCMed Alliance’s Ole Grøndahl Hansen and other experts.

PVCMed Alliance Project Manager Ole Grøndahl Hansen will delve into significant developments within the domain of medical polymers, with a primary focus on Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).

The discussion commences with an in-depth analysis of the recent investigative report on PVC and its additives released by the European Chemicals Agency. Ole will explore the report’s findings and its direct implications for the use of PVC in the healthcare sector. Additionally, Ole will examine the extended use of Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) under the REACH regulation and its harmonisation with the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR), providing valuable insights into the evolving regulatory landscape.

A central theme of the conversation will be the sustainability efforts spearheaded by VinylPlus® Med. Ole will highlight their innovative recycling initiatives, where short-lived PVC products are repurposed into durable hospital wall coverings, contributing to sustainable healthcare infrastructure in Europe.

Moreover, Ole will spotlight the VinylPlus® Pharmpack project. It is a joint effort between VinylPlus, PVC film producers, and recyclers is dedicated to promoting the sustainable development of PVC pharma blister packaging.

Join us for a comprehensive exploration of PVC’s role in the healthcare industry, as we discuss pertinent regulatory updates and commendable sustainability initiatives within the medical polymer field.
