Dr. Ivan Ong to present at the Plastics Recycling World Expo

Mar 19, 2019

Dr. Ivan Ong, Vice President of Research & Innovation at Microban International, will give a featured presentation focused on antimicrobial solutions customized to meet the unique challenges faced by manufacturers utilizing recycled plastics.


Dr. Ong's presentation, Innovative Antimicrobial and Odor Control Solutions for Polymers, is scheduled for Thursday, May 9 at 1:40pm.

As the global leader in antimicrobial and odor control solutions, Microban technologies enhance thousands of products around the globe. The research and development team at Microban International, led by Dr. Ong, has developed particular expertise in the area of recycled plastics. As we know, post-industrial and consumer waste streams can contain significant microbial loads, leading to challenges in processing these materials back into a form with consistent quality and potentially creating malodors that may persist after processing. Microban has a range of antimicrobial solutions that are designed to be safely incorporated into polymers from both virgin and recycled streams to effectively inhibit microbial growth, thus controlling odors and creating cleaner products.
