About this session

Solvents and solvent-based products are used in almost all manufacturing processes, in a wide variety of applications.

Many of the products using solvents within their manufacturing processes are vital to everyday modern living. These include pharmaceuticals (including vaccines and antibiotics) and electronics such as smart phones, medical devices, solar panels and computers.

As we venture into a digital, more sustainable future, solvents will be essential in continuing to deliver new technologies, with minimal impact upon the environment.
The Solvents Industry Association and their members will present on how the industry is adapting to ensure that these essential products can be manufactured sustainably, as we strive to meet net zero targets.
