Speakers for 2019 include subject experts from BMW Group, The Dow Chemical Company, Recticel, Velux, FACC Operations and Huntsman. They’ll be tackling a diverse agenda, with sessions on everything from understanding global trends in the polymeric foam market and the business case for digitising manufacturing lines, to material requirements and opportunities for foams in vehicle electrification and how to implement the European Union’s circular economy package.

Recycling, sustainability and end of life are prominent topics, with panel discussions and roundtables debating how to put circular economy legislation into action; how to overcome the key obstacles of recycling in the foam industry; the challenges in commercialising bio-based materials and green chemistries; and what the industry should expect from the EU and national governments in the years ahead.

Launching with a bang, the opening keynote deep-dives into global trends in the polymeric foam market, with Europur’s president Bart ten Brink exploring market trends and discussing where new markets are opening up, how to stay cost-competitive and the likely effect of Brexit on the industry.

The conference is tailored to educate, inform and help delegates grow their business. Networking lunches ensure ample opportunity to forge new business connections – and strengthen existing ones.
