The Working Party deals with both the theory and practice of electrostatic charges in plastics and polymers in particular and also with assessing safety-relevant impacts of electrostatic charges in the process industry. The Working Party views itself as an expert forum for the discussion of R&D results, the exchange of ideas and experience, and for in-training and the professional development of young scientists and technicians. Its aims span the investigation of the fundamentals of electrostatic charges, their practical applications, and test methods.
