The global conveyor belts market has seen significant activity in recent months in terms of major contract awards, new production projects and mergers & acquisitions.
To build on our coverage of these developments, European Rubber Journal is preparing a feature on the design, formulation and deployment of advanced elastomer materials for this sector.
The report, for the May/June issue, will focus particularly on heavy-duty industrial applications, such as mining, raw materials handling and recycling.
For this, we are asking readers to send in news of recent or current technical developments in areas such as:
- Fire resistance and other safety-critical properties
- Resistance to abrasion and extreme conditions
- Resistance to aggressive media
- Energy-efficiency and environmental performance
We are also keen to pick up viewpoints about regulatory, industry and/or market factors that are impacting this market at present.
To contribute to the feature, please contact ERJ editor Patrick Raleigh by email.
