Biobased coatings and raw materials are the topic of the two-day Biobased Coatings Europe 2018, taking place this week in Antwerp.

Representatives of coatings firms including AkzoNobel, Allnex, BASF, DSM Coating Resins, Perstorp and many others will be speaking at the conference, which will explore topics including:

  • The market outlook for biobased coatings in Europe;
  • Effective marketing of biobased coatings;
  • Developing sustainable biobased building blocks for coatings; and
  • Creating dialogue with the market to establish best practices regarding green and sustainable procurement.

Carmen Alvarado Ascencio, of AkzoNobel, will speak Wednesday on a web-based tool for tracking biobased materials through the supply chain. Also Wednesday, a two-part session will explore building blocks, including resins and solvents, derived from biological sources.

Thursday’s sessions include one exploring the challenges involved in launching a new green paint product aimed at the professional painting market. Other sessions are more technical in nature, like Thursday’s presentation on Vercet lactides in alkyd coating resins.

The conference takes place at the Ramada Plaza Antwerp.
