On 9 June, ISOPA Secretary General Jörg Palmersheim attended EUROPUR’s General Assembly (GA) in Frankfurt, Germany. In the vivid discussions the GA Conference notably looked into the current state of Polyurethane flexible foam market in Europe as well as the challenges and opportunities for polyurethane materials in the automotive industry. Another topic that topped the agenda was the European Commission’s recent roadmap on the Circular Economy – an important regulatory issue to tackle considering the socio-economic dimension of waste management and resource efficiency and its impact on Europe’s competitiveness at global level. Thankfully ISOPA and all Members of the polyurethane industry has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to environmental and socio-economic sustainability on multiple occasions!
