Smither Rapra's TiO2 Summit begins next week in Montreal

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Falmouth, ME - More than 250 pigment supply chain leaders will come together next week at the Le Westin Montréal in Montréal, Canada for Smithers Rapra’s TiO2 World Summit 2014. Argex Titanium, Ford, DuPont Titanium Technologies, Iluka Resources, Tronox, General Motors, Boeing, Industrial Minerals, PPG, China Titanium Consulting and Wells Fargo Securities are just a few of the international leaders who will be providing attendees a global review of minerals and feedstocks; TiO2 supplier perspectives and major global project updates and a look at forging deeper connections between academia, R&D, performance engineering and industry. The TiO2 World Summit is co-located with Smithers Rapra’s Pigment and Color Science Forum. TiO2 conference chairman Reg Adams, managing director for Artikol noted, “As usual, the event will provide a unique opportunity for networking with high-level executives, industry analysts, scientists and engineers from a wide variety of countries and companies. The co-location with the Pigment & Color Science Forum will encourage a dynamic exchange of ideas and experiences with participants in other pigment sectors. Access to a wider range of presentations on organic and inorganic pigments will also be attractive to equipment suppliers and purchasing managers whose responsibilities are not simply confined to TiO2.” “Tronox is a fully integrated producer of TiO2; mining, upgrading and producing TiO2. We like to participate in this conference to share our view of the industry and understand others' perspectives,” added Jean-Francois Turgeon, Executive Vice President of Tronox Limited and conference advisor. “There is no better investment of your time to get a quick overview of the industry and its latest developments. You will meet old friends and hopefully make new ones. It is one stop where you could align meetings with suppliers, customers and investors.” As a new low-cost provider of high quality and high purity TiO2 pigment, Argex Titanium’s COO Enrico Di Cesare, and the company's head of sales and marketing, Philippe Guillemaille, will be keynote speakers. They will discuss the unique characteristics of Argex's titanium pigment and related production technology, which includes purity beyond 99.8 percent as well as significant cost and environmental advantages over current legacy TiO2 production methods. "The TiO2 World Summit is the ideal venue to showcase our environmentally friendly and low-cost TiO2 process, and we look forward to participating in panel discussions with our partners, PPG Industries and Helm," said Roy Bonnell, president and CEO of Argex and a member of the TiO2 Summit Advisory Board. Peter O’Sullivan, Global Sales Leader, DuPont Titanium Technologies will be providing an additional keynote presentation to the audience of business executives, R&D leaders, academics, government policy makers, stakeholders, and investors.
