Portland, Maine – Smithers Rapra’s 13th edition of Carbon Black World will take place 20-22 October in Barcelona, Spain.
The exhibition will feature presentations from Birla Carbon, Cabot Corporation, China Carbon Black Institute (CCBI), Cooper Tire & Rubber, Doright Co., Ltd., Notch Consulting, Omsk Carbon Group, Phillips Carbon Black Limited, Pirelli Tyre, Tire Industry Research and more.
The event brings together feedstock producers, carbon black manufacturers, equipment solution providers and tire and pigment end-users to hear “market-driven and technical perspectives” from Russia, China, Ukraine, Europe, US, India and the Middle East.
Conference director Andrew T. Smaha said: “We are excited to see the global response from carbon black stakeholders this year’s programme has generated – including large delegations from India and North America already registered.
“Additionally Doright Co. Ltd., a Carbon Black World partner, has helped secure a large group of delegates from mainland China – and all conference talks will be simultaneously translated into Mandarin.
“We anticipate this year’s audience to exceed 250 users, specifiers, equipment suppliers and producers of carbon black – our return to Europe after four years will allow [us] to meet with a large network of customers and colleagues.”
Smithers Rapra said limited sponsorship opportunities are available; however the exhibit hall has sold out.
