The 4th ICIS World Surfactants Conference took place on Tuesday 15th - 16th May 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City, United States.

The two day event was hugely successful attracting almost 190 industry professionals and expert speakers involved in surfactants from across the value chain.

The conference offered delegates a range of presentations and discussions to attend as well as providing vast networking opportunities from the cross-section of industry experts represented there.

Dr. Richard Smith, Managing Director of Surfachem Group Ltd (a 2M Holdings Ltd Company), attended the event and delivered a presentation on ‘Insights into surfactant market dynamics from a distributor perspective’ which looked at the key trends and drivers in the UK industry and their impact on new product development.

“The developments in surfactants for shale gas and Enhanced Oil Recovery in the US were insightful and helped to frame the current debate on fracking in the UK”stated Smith. “In addition, the conference has provided us with a more informed view of where the personal care, industrial and home care markets are heading”.
