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.
