Outlook: 30th PTS Coating Symposium 2021

The PTS team has been preparing the content and organisation for some time now. The programme committee is appointed, the main topics are discussed, the venue and the supporting programme are fixed.
With the motto "Functional Coating For Fibre Based Packaging" we can already reveal the tendency of the programme in terms of content and that the event language will be English, which is an enrichment for the international importance and networking.



Review: 29th PTS Coating Symposium 2019

250 participants, 20 presentations, a very well-attended exhibitor forum, and a lively exchange between participants – Papiertechnische Stiftung (PTS), the organizer of the 29th PTS Coating Symposium 2019, is very satisfied with the event and its results.

The motto of this year’s symposium, ‘upgraded - smart - bio’, received good response among the participants who listened with great interest to the key note speakers and presenters and gained new insight into bioeconomy, sustainable packaging, barriers and circular economy.

During the two days of the event, the exhibition space was a very busy spot for networking and business talks to discuss the programme topics and make new contacts.
The conference papers covered a wide range of subjects falling within the scope of the motto, ranging from social topics through market trends to new plant and equipment, resources and eventually new products. For instance, Dr. Yannick Vercammen presented new solutions in the field of biowaxes and barriers from Solenis; Dr. Tobias Meckel from TU Darmstadt showed most recent methods of confocal microscopy in an impressive manner while looking into basic mechanisms of liquid transport in papers. The evening programme with the singer Amy Warning and the dinner provided an excellent setting beyond the technical background of the event.

We address our special thanks to the exhibitors and sponsors of the 29th PTS Coating Symposium 2019 for their enriching presentations and exhibition stands.
