The awareness for the importance of sustainability is growing in most areas – a development that is also true for the coatings industry. Nevertheless, bio-based systems still only account for a small share of the paints and coatings market. However, experts are convinced that the market for bio-based formulations will grow in the next years. Read a detailed market report from page 12 on. From page 18, Pawin Boonyaporn from AGC Chemicals Europe expands on how manufacturers can reduce an end product’s carbon footprint by incorporating bio-based epichlorohydrin. On April 23, 15:00 CET, the author will give more details and answer questions in a live webinar. Registration is free of charge.

Another aspect of sustainability is recyclability. In our legislation section on page 32 Dimitrios Soutzoukis of the the Association of the European Adhesives and Sealants Industry explains the effects of the Circular Economy Package on the industry.
