Welcome and thank you for subscribing to the Microbial Control Executive Council’s bi-annual newsletter. As you may remember from our last update in April, the MCEC has continued in its proactive outreach and communications efforts by attending a number of events over the past few months, with many more activities planned for the near future.
Since our last update, the MCEC has attended events such as the European Coatings Technology Forum in Berlin, where I presented to a number of small focus groups about the MCEC’s aim to promote the benefits of microbial control technologies, and fielded questions about the organisation and our goals for the future. I am happy to say that this was an interesting and innovative way to discuss the organisation’s aims with industry players. In addition to this, MCEC members, BASF and Lonza, attended the Association of Water Technologies (AWT) in Orlando, Florida to discuss industrial water treatment and the role antimicrobials play. Both events offered the MCEC great opportunities to profile itself among our relevant stakeholders.
Additionally, the MCEC has been active in promoting the benefits of microbial control technologies among trade media outlets. The organisation received important media coverage over the past months, with Coatings World, Coatings Xperience, and the European Coatings Journal publishing articles on the MCEC’s activities.
All new content on the MCEC will be posted on our LinkedIn page and website. If you do not already follow us on LinkedIn, please do so to stay up to date on all our exciting activities!
