Send the speaking proposals for UTECH North America 2016 conference by 30th September to be considered for this exciting agenda. The company welcomes papers from companies that are exhibiting at the event in a wide range of fields from machinery to materials to additives across the range of product types.

Conference background

UTECH North America 2016 will be a good time to assess the impact of growth on the US economy as it faces the future. Shale gas is driving an economic change in the US and falling unemployment levels are increasing the capacity of the economy to consume. In further signs of growing economic confidence, US manufacturers are looking to re-shore many different products...exciting times for the US economy and a time of opportunity for polyurethanes.

So at UTECH North America, expect papers on how to innovate products to meet real needs, how to open up new markets, the latest developments in raw materials, polyurethanes systems, processing equipment and manufacturing technologies.
