For its 5th edition, the World Elastomer Summit will return to Dusseldorf, Germany on the 7th & 8th March 2018.
With the volatility of butadiene prices still very much influencing the industry, amongst other factors, the elastomer market is yet to adjust to a more stable supply & demand balance.
On top of this, the elastomer production is still in high demand. It is a fact for the usual main driver – the tyre industry, or new and emerging other applications for end-products. The industry, as the chemicals and plastic ones in general, is also undertaking, important and much needed, changes and improvement in terms of sustainability & recycling.
Over the two days, key industry experts will discuss these challenges & opportunities, as well as industry drivers & future trends, over insightful case studies and interactive panel discussions.
Join us in Dusseldorf to benefit from their experiences. You will exchange it with your peers and network with actors from the entire industry.

The elastomer industry, like many other industries, is constantly looking for innovations in order to compete among its players and other technologies. Innovation can come from within the major players, universities and suppliers to the industry. Without these innovations, the industry stagnates and doors open for competitors and competitive technologies to enter. Polymer Solutions Group is a manufacturer of formulated chemicals that improve the performance, processing and protection of polymers. We are focused on creating and sustaining this innovation for our partners through deep customer intimacy. Our products are used in synthetic rubber production, tire production and non-tire production.
ACI has put together a range of packages to suit your requirements. These range from branding options, to full scale partner solutions and can be tailored to meet your objectives and budgets.
