Dear user of
LDPE plants worldwide

You are cordially invited to our 12th LDPE plant improvement conference. We will discuss all technical aspects of building, running and maintaining an LDPE or EVA high pressure plant - especially process, mechanical, electrical, safety and control considerations.

On the one hand we have specialised LDPE plant suppliers who will present technology updates and technical case studies. On the other hand we invite you, the plant user, to present your improvement challenges and case studies.

The special focus of this year’s conference will be:

Eliminating unnecessary plant shutdown and off-spec product

Please contact us with your presentation idea and we will support you to realise it at our conference. As a reward we will issue a letter of recognition that you can add to your professional CV.
