Utech Europe: Celebrating 75 Years of Polyurethanes
75 years after Prof. Otto Bayer’s initial patent marking the advent of polyurethanes chemistry in 1937, the organisers of Utech Europe 2012 taking place in Maastricht, The Netherlands 17-19 April, have announced the full speaker programme for the three-day conference and confirmed that the accompanying exhibition will be the biggest ever staged.
The Utech Europe 2012 exhibition and conference offers materials specialists from across all industries the perfect opportunity to see global advancements in polyurethane technology including all the latest products and machines. Among more than 100 exhibitors are industry leaders Bayer, BASF, Huntsman, BorsodChem, Wanhua, Shell, Repsol, Baule, Dow, Silcart and Evonik as well as systems houses, technical consultancies, and test laboratories.
In addition to the technical programme, there will be separate sessions created by ISOPA (the European Diisocyanate and Polyols Producers Association) and the Polyurea Development Association Europe.
Last time the event was held in 2009 visitors came from more than 85 different countries worldwide.
