"The MCEC was created to promote and explain the added value and innovation that microbial control technologies bring to society," said W. Brian Smith, MCEC Co-chair and executive vice president and COO of Troy Corp. "Member organizations saw the value in an organization of this kind to foster open dialog about microbial control, and to educate the public on the many benefits this advanced technology offers. Additionally, the MCEC was conceived by member companies to educate audiences on the efforts of these companies undertake to ensure the development of safe, environmentally responsible product technologies."
"Microbial control technologies are essential in today's paints and coatings, both in the paint can during storage and when applied to exterior as well as interior surfaces. The science of microbial control involved determining the source of contaminants and surface growth threats, and then devising the most effective, safest and 'greenest' means to protect them. That is the focus of member organizations at this week's show, and one of the areas the MCEC is engaged in."
The MCEC is a sector group of the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) for the advancement of microbial control. The MCEC is headquartered in Brussels and facilitates dialog on behalf of its members with a broad range of regional and global stakeholders.
