Europur & Euro-Moulders Conference 2019 - A NEW RECORD

The 2019 edition of the annual conference of EUROPUR and EURO-MOULDERS was the most well attended ever. The conference took place on 12 and 13 June in Lisbon and attracted nearly 400 participants from 115 organizations in the PU supply chain from all over Europe, but also from North America and Asia. 

Over two days, participants could attend presentations on the PU foam market and receive regulatory updates from Europe and North America. They could also discuss issues of importance to the industry such as circular economy and recycling, flame retardants, VOCs, odour, product stewardship and environment health and safety. 

No less than 12 companies were officially welcomed as new members by EUROPUR at the event.

Members of EUROPUR now produce slabstock foam in 28 countries of continental Europe and together make 70% of the tonnage produced in the European Economic Area. 

EUROPUR and EURO-MOULDERS wish to warmly thank the over 30 speakers who contributed to making the conference a success!
