For its 3rd edition, the Future of Surfactants Summit North America is heading back to Chicago, IL on the 19th & 20th September 2018.
This year, the conference will explore the following topics & areas: feedstocks availability, trends for homecare & personal care products, other end-products for surfactants (industrial, paint & coatings, agricultural, EOR), bio-based and enzyme-based surfactants, innovation and development process of products, sustainability & green chemistry, news and updates on regulation; and transparency with consumers.
These topics will be presented and discussed by key industry stakeholders over the course of the two days, through case studies and interactive panel discussions.
Once again, actors from the entire value chain – feedstocks suppliers, surfactants producers, end-product manufacturers and technology providers, will get together to go through the most pressing matters of the surfactants industry in North America.
Join us in Chicago for two days of exchanging perspectives, learning and excellent networking opportunities with your peers.
This year, to add on the experience, we have secured an informative and technical site visit at the Method Soap Factory, located in Chicago. Please see below the dedicated tab for more information on this exclusive site visit!
