American Coatings Conference 2022 Highlights

Tuesday, April 5

On April 5, the American Coatings Conference began with the Plenary Session. Attendees heard a Keynote address by Chris Killian, Ph.D., senior vice president and CTO at Eastman (above, far left). The presentation, titled “The Role of Innovation in the Coatings Industry When Every Color Must be Green,” discussed how the resilience of our technology innovation and creativity are leading the coatings industry to answer the call to carry our customers to a more sustainable future, from coatings that save energy and reduce material use; coatings that reduce waste through improving the durability and lifetime of assets; coatings that improve the safety and wellness of the consumers they touch; and coatings that will drive the circular economy.

Following the keynote address, the American Coatings Award was presented to Steve Block (above, center), vice president of Business Development at NXTLEVVEL Biochem for his paper titled, “The Use of Levulinates as Coalescing Agents in Water-Based Coatings.”
