Borealis has enjoyed a constructive dialogue at APACT conferences during the last 10 years. As we are constantly struggling to develop new and more efficient PAT technologies, any interface tht could help towards that is extremely useful. We feel that CPACT is an enabler in developing and sharing emerging PAT technologies.
