After five days of intensive work, over 200 presentations, discussion panels, poster sessions, social events and technical tours, the 30th CIMAC World Congress ended today. More than 700 experts from all over the world attended the Congress. In his closing remarks, Congress President Kwang Hean An expressed his heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of participating and making this event such a great success. He mentioned that this year's congress has been particularly exciting, with some of the most visible advancements in the field of renewable fuels, increased digitalization, and a strong focus on reducing carbon footprint. The newly elected CIMAC president Rick Boom, Woodward, thanked the hosts and expressed his satisfaction with the course of the Congress. "It has been a very intense week here in Busan. I learned a lot of new things and hope that many of the good ideas and suggestions that were given here can also be put into practice,” he said and added that it has been shown once again that personal contact and direct discussion among experts are irreplaceable.

The next CIMAC Congress will, as the organizers return to the old rhythm after the exception forced by Covid-19, take place in 2 years already. Zurich in Switzerland will be the host city from May 19 to 23, 2025.
