Epoxy Europe joines EuCIA

8 February 2023

Epoxy Europe, part of Cefic (the European Chemical Industry Council), The European trade association for the chemical industry, has joined EuCIA. Epoxy Europe represents the largest epoxy producers in Europe. Collaboration between Epoxy Europe and EuCIA is a big step in strengthening a unified voice of the entire European value chain for composites and also offers Epoxy Europe a better insight into the needs of (downstream) market parties and customers.

Epoxy Europe supports EuCIA’s vision to promote the sustainability of composite materials and improve their circularity. “The epoxy industry supports Europe’s ambition to be climate neutral by 2050,” states Ana Martin, Sector Group Manager, Cefic. “Many fundamental technologies critical for the European Green Deal rely on epoxy resins. We are aligned with EuCIA’s sustainability initiatives; we look forward to sharing knowledge and best practices with EuCIA and its membership to support the sustainable growth of the composites industry in Europe.”

The first meeting dedicated to this collaboration took place on 23 January 2023 in Brussels. Link to the presentations of that day (pdf). For EuCIA’s specific sustainability vision, please refer to page 29 of this document.
