Microban is proud to announce that we are now a member of the British Plastics Federation (BPF). Through this new association, Microban aims to have a positive impact on the plastics industry by advancing awareness of antimicrobial technologies and how they can improve the performance of plastic products.

Established in 1933, the BPF is the world’s longest-running plastics trade association with over 450 member companies representing the entire plastics supply chain, including plastic recyclers, polymer suppliers and distributors, additive suppliers, service providers, plastics processors, packaging manufacturers, and much more. The BPF member companies account for over 80% of the UK plastics industry's turnover.

Despite a widespread movement to reduce the use of plastics, demand for the material shows no signs of slowing down. In support of urgent climate action, governments, businesses, and consumers alike are pushing for new initiatives and product features that address waste challenges. Through the utilisation of antimicrobial technologies, plastic products remain cleaner, fresher, and more durable for longer, helping to discourage premature disposal and keeping plastic products out of landfills.

Graham Harvey, Global Group Director at Microban International, commented: “We are delighted to join the BPF. I look forward to bringing our world-leading expertise in antimicrobial technologies to mutual members who are looking to create cleaner, greener plastic products.”
