Forum Objective

Advanced Technology for the Future Polyurethane Industry

Polyurethane has led the drastic change in our lives and established a solid position as an essential material in the society more than 80 years since its discovery.

Polyurethane has been supporting our comfortable life and continued to grow and expand through responding lots of needs which has been changing by new era and adding functions. Polyurethane is not only an essential material to support our health and environment, but also expected to develop lots of products made of it.

In this forum, we invite Mr. Patrick W. Thomas, who has been committed to develop and popularize polyurethane, and Professor Hiroshi Uyama of Osaka University, who is a pioneer of polyurethane research in Japan. They talk about

“Polyurethanes in Circular Economy” and “Bio-based Polyurethanes for Sustainable Development”. We also invite professionals from various fields, and they give us lectures about advanced polyurethane technologies from “Environment and Safety”, “Functionalization”, “Supporting Life” and others.

Raw material & machinery manufacturers, end users, universities & public institutions and people from other industries are joining together to hold this forum for the discussion of the future growth of the industry. You will find the overview of the forum as below :
