European Carbon Black Summit

Date: 14th June 2023 - 15th June 2023 Location: Frankfurt - Germany

Building on the success of last edition of summit we are delighted to be back with ACI’s 3rd European Carbon Black Summit that will take place on 14th on 15th June 2023 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Carbon Black(CB) demand is forecasted to increase, and addressing this increase will be very challenging as the war in Ukraine has already caused a big gap in the supply of virgin carbon black. Some of the experts from this field say that shortage of supply of CB goes up to 40% compared to the years before the war. The main focus of this summit will be to address these issues. With key topics such as CB market overview, improving sustainability in the industry, achieving superiority in supply chain and others we will try to give answers to these pressing issues. Focus will be also on improving standardisation in recovered CB as well as problems with calculating life cycle of tires.

As is evident, European CB industry is facing big challenges in virgin and recovered carbon black industry. Big amount of energy and time will be used in adaptation to the new situation which will be key for the industry to continue to progress, as well as meeting the demands of the end users.

This two-day event will bring together the senior representatives of the different stakeholders involved in the sector from producers, technology developers, rubber producers, chemical suppliers, researchers, as well as other influential stakeholders from the value chain.

Join us at this Summit to discover the key topics and updates from the latest developments in essential areas of the carbon black industry.

The family-owned company Hauschild Engineering employs around 40 people and has been developing and producing the SpeedMixer technology at its headquarters in Hamm/Germany since 1974, selling it directly or with partners all over the world.
The Hauschild SpeedMixer® offers perfect mixing results from a few grams or milliliters up to ten kilograms or sixteen liters. The machines are mostly used in laboratories that mix substances as part of their R&D work, as well as by companies that require small batch mixes for quality assurance.
Mixing takes place bladeless by using centrifugal forces that work in a rotation/counter-rotation. This technology requires no further cleaning, thus saving time and money. When handling Carbon Black, the SpeedMixer is referenced as the official tool for the Standard Test Method for Carbon Black—Tint Strength ASTM D3265. The test procedure using the SpeedMixer technology offers substantial time saving (mixing/dispersing between 2-5 minutes) and guarantees absolute reproducibility.

The newest development is the SpeedMixer SMART DAC series that offer SMART innovations like real-time temperature control, vacuum-robotic, sensor integration, variable- counter- rotation, Internet-of-things-compliance, QR-code reader, remote-control, and automatic pot-cooling-system. Capacities range from 2 g to 1,5 kg and 2 kg and volume from 12ml up to 2.8 litres.
