Future of Polyolefins 2019

With the new European directive on plastic waste & circular economy targets, and the investments wave on new production plants, the polyolefins industry is facing changes in the near future. It will not only need to adapt to them, but also work as a whole, with all actors from the value chain involved, to live up to expectations and thrive.


All these changes, and other pressing matters in the industry, will be addressed at ACI’s 7th edition of the Future of Polyolefins Summit, taking place in Antwerp, Belgium, on the 16th & 17thJanuary 2019.


Over the two days, the participants will discuss the different factors influencing the polyolefins industry, and of course the impact of the Circular Economy.


The conference will also discuss how to maintain performance whilst aiming for recyclability & degradability of materials; lightweightingdesign & application for polyolefin based packagingconverting technologies; as well as recycling & reusing polyolefins.


This new edition will bring together senior executives from petrochemical companies, plastic converters, technology providers, chemical intermediate suppliers, researchers, as well as other influential stakeholders from the value chain.


Join us in Antwerp for two days of exchanging perspectives, learning and excellent networking opportunities with your peers.
