Global polyurethane consumption shows no sign of slowing down, yet in an uncertain world the challenge remains to find new opportunities for growth. Setting the tone for the 2016 UTECH North America conference, Chris Chrisafides will ask where to look and how to work in order to harness all the possibilities available from the next generation of polyurethanes.

Featuring nearly 40 detailed technical papers delivered in a total of eight sessions, the conference will cover the latest developments in the world of polyurethanes and reveal unique insights into the North American polyurethanes market. Following Chrisafides in the conference’s plenary session, Robert Outram of IAL Consultants will present North American Polyurethane: Global Snapshot and Strategic Outlook. Paul Bertram, Director Environment and Sustainability/Government Affairs at Kingspan Insulated Panels rounds off the session with a paper entitled How the 2°C Paris COP21 Agreement Drives Low Carbon Building Energy Efficiency, heralding the first of the conference’s two sessions focusing on sustainability issues.

Other dedicated sessions from two parallel conference streams include those looking at polyurethanes technology in automotive applications, flexible foams, rigid foams, CASE products (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers) and the latest advances in processing equipment. The final session looks at blowing agent innovations and two science papers.

Conference delegate rates are highly competitive compared to other events in the industry and offer outstanding value to all those with a professional interest in polyurethanes.

Major international companies among more than 120 exhibiting at the accompanying free-to-attend UTECH North America 2016 trade show are Dow Chemical, Wanhua of China, Cannon, Hennecke Inc, DuPont & Tate & Lyle, Repi LLC, Honeywell, Chromaflo Technologies and Tosoh. The event is supported by the Polyurethane Manufacturers Association (PMA), the industry organization dedicated to advancing cast polyurethane technology.
