Reflections of Guilin

Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 11:48 am

I was in Guilin, China last week for the Carbon Black China 2008 conference. The conference has been held since the mid-1980s, but this is the first year that participants from outside China have been invited. Notch Consulting Group was invited to present a keynote address, “Carbon Black Industry Outlook,” which was rounded out by an excellent slate of speakers and papers over two days. It was a well organized and valuable conference in one of the most naturally beautiful places I have ever visited.

I have received updates on some pending expansion projects in the carbon black industry, including projects in India, Nigeria (discussed below), and Saudi Arabia. Details on these projects will be included in the Mid-Year Update for the Carbon Black World Data Book, which will be sent to subscribers this week. To obtain this update or the Carbon Black World Data Book, contact Notch Consulting Group.
