2nd Asia-Pacific Base Oil Conference
More than 2.7 million metric tons of new capacity will be installed in the Asia-Pacific region by the end of this decade. Find out who these new base oil players are and what their plans are.
Who will be there?
Technical, marketing and management personnel of companies selling and purchasing base oils, including base oil producers, distributors, agents and brokers, lubricant formulators, manufacturers and marketers,
toll blenders, additive suppliers and companies that provide logistical support, including shippers, tank storage, laboratory and blending equipment, etc.
The conference will be held in Beijing. Why Beijing? Economic and increasingly political gravity are shifting to Asia, and China, undeniably, is in the center of this shift. The 2008 Olympics will launch Beijing as a global city. China by far has the largest base oil capacity in the Asia-Pacific region. Double-digit economic growth and growing private car ownership has spurred lubricant consumption and thus, demand for base oil, in China. The second Asia-Pacific base oil conference will explore the current situation in China, the new players in the Asian base oil scene, as well as the technology drivers behind the increasing use of unconventional base oils, plus a half-day workshop on base oil interchange will be conducted by the American Petroleum Institute (API).
