The 26th Tecnon OrbiChem & ICIS World Chlor-Alkali Conference is scheduled for 15-16 June 2023 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Singapore.
The Asia Pacific region leads the supply market for global caustic soda supply with its 55% share. Paper, food and beverages, synthetic fibre and personal care products have fuelled its demand, which is now outpacing western countries.
Europe's chlor-alkali industry faces challenges including energy cost hikes and plant shutdowns due to the Russian/Ukraine conflict. And the US - home to major producers - continues to influence the global market.
With changes in regional markets affecting the wider chlor-alkali industry, attendance provides the perfect opportunity for you to hear about region outlooks. And delegates will learn about the biggest challenges and growth areas in the industry.
'...the dotted yellow line shows plants running as expected, the red line represents historical consumption & forecast to 2030.
Without new plants, forecasted consumption will soon exceed capacity'
