Come hear Valentina Serra-Holm, Marketing & Technology Director at Nynas AB and a UEIL board member, on

10.30am on Friday 16th September, 2016 at The Palace Hotel, Manchester.

European and global base oil landscape is undergoing a significant change, with the restructuring of Group I production and investments in new Group II and III capacity.

The production restructuring has impacted the global availability of heavy oils, with tightness of heavy neutrals and tightness-to-shortage of bright stock.

The future supply-demand outlook for these grades will be discussed and existing alternatives will be compared.

From 1996 to 2001 she worked as Senior Researcher at Abo Akademi.  During her academic career, she has published more than 40 scientific papers in the field of industrial catalysis and is co-assignee of a world patent for manufacturing of polyols.
