Wednesday, November 19, 2014 — Brussels

EuMBC, the European Masterbatchers and Compounders, a Sector Group of EuPC, elected their new President and Board at the last General Assembly on 7 November.

Philip Portael was elected President, Michela Conterno Vice-President for Communication and Marc Cornu Vice-President for Regulatory Affairs. Other Board members are Adrian Baker, Frank Roederer and Massimo Veronelli (Treasurer).

This board is a reflection of a large part of the different industries (MB and compounding) in the EU and its members clearly aim to represent the industry sector above their individual companies.

EuMBC is the European association of masterbatches and compounds manufacturers. EuMBC is building up upon the legacy of the former ETHIC association, and provides a very wide range of diversified benefits to their members, covering most critical issues for their business and licence to operate, such as:

  • Supporting obligated companies under the REACH regulation with specific tools and services

  • Positioning masterbatches and compounds in the plastic value chain

  • Participating with their plastic converter customers in key market sector related activities (e.g. Packaging, Automotive, Electrical & Electronic, Building & Construction, Medical etc.)

  • Keeping them fully aware and enabling their contribution to critical horizontal activities such as raw materials issues, food-contact developments, recycling etc.

  • Protecting their industry’s interest in other fields e.g. energy, labour cost or trade issues
