ASC Partners with ASTM for Sustainability Council

The Adhesive and Sealant Council Inc. (ASC) recently announced it is partnering with ASTM International (ASTM) to produce the inaugural Adhesives and Sealants Sustainability Summit July 26-27 in Rosemont, IL. The sustainability summit will provide an opportunity for the adhesive and sealant supply chain to discuss all aspects of sustainability as it relates to the sector.

“The trend of sustainability is no longer an emerging trend-it is an important part of the specification process for the industry, yet the market has not collaborated in order to agree on definitions, testing much less standards and measures,” said Matthew E. Croson, president of the ASC. “ASC, in partnership with ASTM and its technical committees D14 and C24 that support adhesives and sealants, invite all industry stakeholders to attend this first-ever event, and make sure their voice is heard when it comes to how green and sustainability impacts adhesives and sealants.”

The sustainability summit will feature three keynote speakers who will outline issues impacting the sector. Keynotes will be presented by Robert Peoples, Ph.D., Green Chemistry Institute; Hermann Onusseit, Ph.D., FEICA/Henkel; and Rik Master, USGBC Technical TAG/USG Corp.Panels will focus on important market sectors, including transportation, building/construction and packaging, and participants will discuss issues concerning sustainability within the respective market segments.
