Help us to identify the most significant advances in the field of elastomer/rubber technology

With our Elastomers for Sustainability initiative, ERJ aims to draw up a Top 10 of materials technologies, based on their contribution to enhancing the environmental profile of our industry.
 
The Elastomers for Sustainability programme comprises five categories:
-    Automotive components
-    Construction, incl. recreational areas
-    Consumer, medical and other GRGs
-    Industrial products
-    Tires

Individuals and companies are invited to provide suggestions for the Top 10, along with supporting details, which can include published information, ranging from press releases to technical papers.

Entries should ideally involve a product application, which has been commercialised within the last 18 months. Materials technologies at an advanced stage of commercialisation will, of course, also be considered.

The deadline for entries is 16 October 2020.

The Top 10 technologies will then be selected from these entries by an independent panel, comprising experts from leading industry associations and academic groups.

The results of the next Elastomers for Sustainability Top 10 programme will be published in the November/December edition of European Rubber Journal magazine.
