Two new speakers during 5th World Elastomer Summit

We are very pleased to announce two new speakers during our 5th World Elastomer Summit taking place in Dusseldorf on 7th & 8th March 2018.

Sebastian Eyerer, Research Assistant from Institute for Energy Systems of Technical University of Munich, Germany and Dr Maria Gyftopoulou, Senior Economist from LMC International, UK, have kindly agreed to speak at the event, where they will be sharing their knowledge and experience with the participants, during insightful presentations.

Dr Gyftopoulou will present during Session One on the Elastomer Market – Global & European Scale. Mr Eyerer will join us during Session Five regarding (Other) End-Products and Material Compatibility of Polymers and Refrigerants.


In the afternoon of Tuesday 6th March, before the conference, a limited number of attendees will have the opportunity to visit both the Black Bear Carbon’ pyrolysis plant (Nederweert, NL) and Arlanxeo’s EPDM plant (Geleen, NL).

If you are keen to take part in this unique opportunity to visit two very innovative and specialised elastomer plants, please let us know you are interested while booking for the conference. There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are limited and allocated on first come first served basis.

Please note that, due to compliance reasons, attendance is subject to approval from Black Bear Carbon & Arlanxeo.

Join us at the 5th World Elastomer Summit in Dusseldorf next March to potentially visit these two sites and have the opportunity to find out more about Black Bear Carbon & Arlanxeo during their respective presentations at the conference.
