When we say that ALAFAVE’s events are unique opportunities we are serious.
Our Congress in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, is a clear example. Once again, we’ll have the participation of our top notch experts in four technical presentations, introducing crucial topics for our industry.
Let us give you a brief so that you can start preparing your questions:
JOSÉ LUIS MONTES
“CHANGES ON GLOBAL REFINING AND ITS EFFECT ON PARAFFINIC WAX SUPPLY”
José Luis Montes
José Luis will present technological changes in the base oil refining process and the global impact in wax supply, and economy by providing information and tools to project market tendencies in the candle industry.
“THE SCIENCE OF CANDLE FLAME MEASUREMENT”
Have you ever asked yourself why is it important to study a candle flame and be able to collect the data? Did you know that the measurement of a flame plays an important role in regulatory requirements, candle burn performance and identification of combustion problems? Because it does, the presentation will inform our participants of the latest technology available to measure a candle flame and the main functions of this new app for smartphones & tablets.
Niels Van Opstal
“CRYSTAL MODIFICATIONS OF HYDROGENATED FATS”
Niels Van Opstal
Niels Van Opstal, one of our newest ALAFAVE’s member, is presenting “Crystal modifications of hydrogenated fats,” which includes his molecular technology to improve candles with a more natural and less expensive product called NCaST. Without extreme changes, the proposal is to be up to date with the ever changing industry standards. This is a tested formula which is considered to be promising in Europe. Do you want to know what the difference between NCaST and the polymerized alpha-olefins is? You cannot miss Niels’ technical presentation.
PABLO OJEDA FUENTES
“THE MARKET OF OILS AND VEGETABLE WAXES, AN ECOLOGICAL AND SUSTAINABLE OPTION FOR CANDLE MANUFACTURING”
Pablo Ojeda Fuentes
In such a changing world, it is always important to have alternatives from both sources of supply and finished products.
Customers are currently looking for purchases that match the responsibility and sustainability market trends. That is why, there is an interesting option for raw materials supply: oils and vegetable fats.
Undoubtedly, this conference will not only show you the oils and vegetable fats markets, but also it will help you to know the economic, political, social and macroeconomic situations.
In addition to these four presentations, ALAFAVE is including one more benefit to the list, Kaiser Lacke’s: Lacquer follow up workshop, it will be offered on Friday July 14, at 9:30 a.m. Ben Leyer taught us the lacquer’s technique in Mexico City 2014. How is it working for your candle business? Join us to get valuable tips in a question and answer session.
Certainly, the knowledge, experience and willingness to share the insights that our exhibitors bring are some of the points added to the long list of reasons why none of our ALAFAVE members should miss our upcoming Congress in Punta Cana.
See you there!
