Beta Analytic will join this year’s Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) Sustainability Summit as an exhibitor. Business Development Manager Mauricio Larenas will represent the company at the two-day event in Rosemont, Illinois, which starts July 26, 2011. The summit will focus on defining “green” adhesives and sealants.
“The summit is a good opportunity to introduce ASTM D6866 biobased content testing to manufacturers, suppliers, formulators, and standards professionals. I will be available for consultation at the Beta Analytic booth near the registration area throughout the event. I would welcome any inquiries the participants will have about biobased content testing and its role in various certification programs worldwide,” Mr. Larenas says.
The 2011 ASC Sustainability Summit, to be held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, will include panel discussions focused on transportation, packaging, and building construction market segments; break out sessions, and a tour of a LEED Silver Building. Dr. Robert Peoples, American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute Director, will be joining the event as a keynote speaker. He will discuss the business importance of green chemistry across the industry.
