The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC), host of the recent 2022 World Adhesive and Sealant Conference (WAC 2022), recently announced the winner of the event’s Best Presentation. In order to evaluate the presentations, the ASC Technical and Programming Committee surveyed attendees during and after the conference. Judges were also placed throughout the presentations to determine the best presentations.

The committee tabulated the results, and the winner of the Best Presentation went to Becky Krisopeit of Henkel in the Henkel Sustainability Across the Value Chain track. Her presentation was entitled “Adhesives and Coatings as Enablers of Circular Economy in Packaging and Consumer Goods.”

The runners-up, who also received high marks, include: John Brandt from Covestro; Volker Stanjek from Wacker; Malcolm Davidson from Citrine Informatics; Raphael Schaller from nolax AG; George Boyajian from Mussel Polymers, Inc.; and Hamid Mortazavian from L&L Products.
