PEPP 2018: Polyethylene-Polypropylene Chain Global Technology & Business Forum
IHS Markit is presenting the Polyethylene-Polypropylene Chain Global Technology & Business Forum in Düsseldorf, Germany on June 26-28, 2018.
The New Plastics Future: Challenges and Possibilities for Polyolefins
The shift in competitive landscape, as well as policy changes, is presenting new challenges and possibilities for polyolefins. These changes are expected to drive new requirements, breakthroughs and product innovations that will shape applications from automotive to consumer products to industrial solutions.
The wave of much anticipated new PE capacity from North America is slated to come onstream this year, of which a significant portion is expected to hit the European market. How will producers manage global supply strategies? What will trade flows and logistics look like against increased new capacity? What is the demand-supply outlook for each region?
Recycling and sustainability have gained importance in recent years, and will have significant impact on the polyolefins industry, particularly with new legislation such as Europe’s policy on recycling requirements, and China’s ban on waste imports. How will these new policies impact the polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) industry?
How will these developments define your strategies for success?
Attend the 26th Annual Polyethylene-Polypropylene Chain Global Technology & Business Forum (PEPP 2018), and hear from IHS Markit and industry experts over two full days.
The agenda includes the main sessions:
- Global business review and feedstocks
- Trade flows and supply chain logistics
- Sustainability and Recycling
- Technology and catalyst developments
- Developments in polyolefins applications including packaging, automotive, additives
Now in its 26th year, the conference consistently attracts more than 150 attendees from around the world, offering a unique platform to interact with a mix of value chain participants to get the latest developments on market trends.
Proceed the conference with our training workshop Olefins and Polyolefins: Feedstocks, Cost Competitiveness, Market Dynamics, Technologies and Trade which will examine the commercial impact of olefins and polyolefins technologies on cost competitiveness, market dynamics and trade.
The IHS Markit PEPP conference is the only conference addressing issues specific to the entire polyolefins value chain—from upstream business reviews to downstream technical applications and end-user trends.
