GERMANY: Nearly 1,500 participants from 24 countries attended the 2008 SEPAWA Congress, which took place in Oct. 15-17 in Würzburg, alongside the European Detergents Conference (EDC).

“We are absolutely satisfied with the response...Increases in the number of participants as well a steadily increasing demand for more and larger exhibition stands prove that the SEPAWA Congress has great future prospects,” said Robert Fischer, spokesman.

A new board of directors was elected at this year’s congress, and the number of board members was increased to seven. The new president is Prof. Dr. Ulrich Buller, research panel of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Other newly-elected members of the board are Thilo Baum, BASF AG, Axel Euler, Evonik (secretary), Robert Fischer, SOFW, Lothar Rasthofer, Horst Waltenberger, Impag GmbH (treasurer) and Prof. Dr. Klaus-Peter Wittern, Beiersdorf AG.
