For its 5th edition, the World Elastomer Summit will return to Dusseldorf, Germany on the 7th & 8th March 2018.

With the volatility of butadiene prices still very much influencing the industry, amongst other factors, the elastomer market is yet to adjust to a more stable supply & demand balance.

On top of this, the elastomer production is still in high demand. It is a fact for the usual main driver – the tyre industry, or new and emerging other applications for end-products. The industry, as the chemicals and plastic ones in general, is also undertaking, important and much needed, changes and improvement in terms of sustainability & recycling.

Over the two days, key industry experts will discuss these challenges & opportunities, as well as industry drivers & future trends, over insightful case studies and interactive panel discussions.
