Dear Sir or Madam,

We would like to announce a conference about the implementation of the Solvent Emissions Directive (99/13/EC) in Nova Gorica (Slovenia) on the 12th and 13th October 2006. We also invite you to present your own contribution at this conference; the deadline for abstract submission is 15.06.2006.

The conference will be part of the research project SMS VOSLESS, in which the possibilities to comply with the European Solvents Directive (also called "VOC-Directive") are analysed for several industry sectors. The aim of the project is to publish practical guidelines for complying with the Directive based on case studies and to develop a software tool in order to assist companies in setting up a solvent management plan and a reduction scheme.

Another aim of the conference is to provide the possibility of information exchange between companies that have to comply with the Directive, control authorities, research institutes and suppliers of innovative emission reduction (or prevention) technologies. We invite you to present in your own experiences, problems or solutions (innovative techniques) to the audience. The deadline for abstract submission is 15.06.2006 (see website). Simultaneous translation to English, German, Italian and Slovenian is foreseen for the conference.

Contributions are expected from the research institutes participating in the project, but also from companies from all sectors affected by the Directive. The focus will be on:
* Wood and Metal coating
* Surface cleaning, dry cleaning
* Vehicle refinishing
* Coatings production
* Shoe production
* rubber conversion
