The 58th annual Polyurethanes Technical Conference which took place in Orlando, Florida, from 5 to 7 October 2015 was an excellent opportunity for ISOPA Secretary General, Jörg Palmersheim, to share an regulatory update on Diisocyanates in the EU a broad audience.

The longest-running polyurethanes conference in North America – organised by the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) – featured 75 technical presentations, 38 poster presentations, industry table top exhibits, a Professional Development Program and premier networking events, again demonstrating its role as one of the world's leading events in the PU industry.

In his speech Mr Palmersheim focused on the project carried out by the German REACH Authorities in cooperation with the polyurethanes industry to further improve safety behaviour at the workplace when handling Diisocyanates.
