Only 8 Spaces Left For The Site Visits

ACI is happy to inform that we still have 8 places available for the site visits before our 5th World Elastomer Summit taking place on 7th & 8th of March 2018 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

In the afternoon of Tuesday 6th March, before the conference, some 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 visits, 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 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.
