OCSiAl is the world’s largest manufacturer of graphene nanotubes and owns the only scalable technology that can synthesize this material in industrial volumes. Flexible, long, and ultra-strong, graphene nanotubes resemble human hairs in their shape but are 50,000 times thinner. Graphene nanotubes form a conductive reinforcing 3D network inside materials, imparting a new set of properties to elastomers.

In contrast to other conductive agents, TUBALL graphene nanotubes from OCSiAl offer a combination of properties that can take elastomers to the next level, such as: superior electrical conductivity, improved mechanical properties, retained color without carbon release to the surface, and good processability. So far, OCSiAl has developed industry-friendly nanotube concentrates for most types of elastomers, including silicones, special rubbers, and latexes.

The Indian/International Rubber Journal (IRJ) has enjoyed 26 successful years in the international media sector as a print publication and international trade magazine for the global rubber industry. Globally well known, the IRJ was targeted towards rubber industry professionals, decision makers and C level executives for industry companies.

This year, we have decided to pivot to an all-digital format and have phased out the print publication.

We present everything you loved about the IRJ for 26 years – news, features, interviews, analysis of the global rubber industry-now updated daily, instead of bi-monthly.
Unaltered will be our India-centric focus which makes the IRJ a great resource, while scouring the world for developments that impact the rubber industry.
Now, more than ever, our readership comprises rubber sector executives who want to stay connected and informed, to hear about the newest developments and products in the industry. Our website aims to be the go-to for rubber industry professionals, featuring daily news updates and breaking news of events in the Natural Rubber and Synthetic Rubber sectors, about various kinds of rubber industry companies across the world, the Tire and Auto sectors and about upcoming industry events. Updated Natural Rubber prices are posted daily on the website, providing even more value.

Ranking among the world’s top biomass trade shows, APBE 2020 is going to be staged on a show floor of 15,000 with 200+ exhibitors. The 7th Asia-Pacific Bioenergy Summit will give you a glimpse at the forefront of biomass technology. What’s more, the show will be held under the same roof as 2020 China Heat Energy Exhibition (Heat China 2020) and the 12th Guangzhou Int’l Solar Photovoltaic Exhibition 2020 (PV Guangzhou 2020), offering more heating and energy solutions!


At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.


ACI is doing everything to ensure that all its events go ahead as advertised, returning to the much-missed and valuable face-to-face interaction as soon as possible.  In order to ensure the events are delivered as safely as possible, venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in line with the relevant local and regulations and guidelines.

These have been exceptionally challenging times with very fast-moving updates. As we get closer to an event we look at each one individually, paying careful heed to local regulations, but without ignoring the international situation. Whatever happens, ACI will safeguard the investments that attendees have made by either automatically moving it to the new dates of the event or a full credit will be provided for use when booking a future ACI event.
