FreeFOAM project partner The Association of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industry of the Slovak Republic (ZCHFP) generously hosted the third meeting of the FreeFOAM consortium at their facilities in Bratislava in June.
The FreeFOAM project consortium is structured to best ensure that the objectives of the project – to develop an improved PU foaming process using microencapsulated isocyanate to precisely control the foaming reaction during the production of PUR expandedfoam – are met through the key components of scientific research, technical development,project dissemination and project exploitation
Each of the nine partner organisations presented a summary of results achieved through individual and collaborative partner activities since the project commenced in May.
The consortium approved a detailed presentation on the aims and expected results of the FreeFOAM project to be presented at the general assembly and annual technical conference of Europur and Euro-moulders (European PUR manufacturing associations) in Vienna in July.
The meeting concluded with the consortium, led by CETEM, developing and agreeing a plan of activities to be carried out during the next six months which would then be the halfway point of the project.
Finally, special thanks was expressed to ZCHFP for the facilities and hospitality that had been extended to the partners during this event. The review meeting will be held in Brussels at REA in October 2014.
