Future of Surfactants Summit

Date: 22nd May 2024 - 23rd May 2024

ACI’s 8th Future of Surfactants Summit will be taking place on the 22nd – 23rd May 2024 in Seville, Spain. We will continue to find solutions to pressing issues such as the potential restrictions on 1,4-Dioxane, alternative feedstocks, becoming more biodegradable and becoming a circular economy. We also have the chance to discuss new technologies and solutions that are constantly evolving in the industry and increasing efficiency in chemical manufacturing.

The event will give important updates and revisions from the past year while foreseeing what is next to come for the industry and encouraging the use of more biodegradable and bio-based surfactants without the overuse of greenwashing marketing techniques often found in these type of industries.

The two-day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from feedstocks suppliers, raw material producers and suppliers, chemical distributors, surfactant manufacturers, consumer product manufacturers, private labels, retailers, industrial cleaning product manufacturers, lab equipment suppliers, technology suppliers.
