The fine and speciality chemicals industry is one of Europe's largest manufacturing sectors and plays a pivotal role in providing innovative materials and technological solutions. It operates in a rapidly changing market and faces many challenges. The roadmap for the European Green Deal sets the expectations that, by 2050, the EU chemicals sector will need to become carbon neutral, digitalise its processes and transition to safe and sustainable chemicals whilst adapting to changing legislative measures and a circular economy.
These aspects and the need for cost reduction are crucial to the industry, forcing companies to continuously adapt to markets and customer needs. The choice of the right suppliers and the exchange of knowledge within international industry networks is more important than ever, making Chemspec Europe a key event for the industry.
