The Colour & Vision Group of the University of Alicante is an inter and multidisciplinary research team focused on colour science and technology, and visual perception and ergonomics, involved in the search of technological-scientific solutions where human vision performs an important role in the optimisation and development of industrial processes (even prototypes), and, visual comfort and security of leisure and work activities.

The Laboratory of Colour & Vision has a relevant infrastructure in scientific instruments and resources for specifying the visual, optical and colorimetric properties of any material (http://web.ua.es/en/gvc ). Its scientific-technological offer copes with the next issues for colour science and technology topic: spectral and colorimetric characterisation of special (luminescent, metallic, pearlescent, functional pigments) and normal materials; coloration of materials with conventional dyes and hybrid nano-pigments, and its optimisation by statistical design of experiments (DoE); digital colour reproduction, etc.

The workshop will explore upcoming projects and innovations within the pigment and colour space with reference to day to day applications.

The much-anticipated TiO2 World Summit 2017 will unite the titanium dioxide supply chain for 2 days of technical presentations on everything from market outlooks and the latest developments to safety and alternatives.

Just some of the exciting sessions include:

  • An Outlook on TiO2 Markets with presentations from TZMI, Lomon Billions Group and Wells Fargo
  • Updates on Nano TiO2 Applications with presentations from JTJ and Levenger Nanotechnology
  • Feedstock Mineral Focus with presentations from Iluka Resources, Blue Jay Mining and Endeka Ceramics

Other speakers include Tronox, PPG, FP-Pigments, Argex, L'Oreal and A Schulman ensuring that attendees will hear directly from leading TiO2 experts.

As the conference is co-located with the Pigment and Colour Science Forum, there will be also be two joint sessions. The opening plenary session on day one covering Pigment Industry Updates and the closing session on day two focusing on End Market Innovations will enable the TiO2 supply chain to connect with the pigment and colourants sector.

A number of leading companies including Cristal, Devine Chemicals, La Roca Group, Kronos, Base Resources and more have already confirmed their attendance so this must-attend annual event will truly bring together all of the key global players under one roof.
