The congress emphasized the conformation of the industry to a frame of sustainability in terms of energy consumption and management of effluents, as these will be activated by world-wide directives. Novel technologies and configurations of ovens and coating systems (such as water-borne coatings) were presented and were among the highlights. The participants also attended the Educational Workshop on “Understanding the STS BREF: Implications for the industry”, which was organized in the frame of the congress.
