Every four years a member of the European Committee of Organic Surfactants and their Intermediates (CESIO) hosts the international congress; this year’s host was the French Association for Surfactants (ASPA).

As reflected in the theme of CESIO congress president’s keynote speech "Safe and Sustainable,‥the main theme for the 2008 congress, "Surfactants, the key to your sustainable applications‥attracted over 800 researchers and businesspersons from every corner of the world for the opportunity to advance the exchange professional and technical knowledge and experience.

Kao Chemicals Europe, a Kao Group company, provided three oral presentations and two poster presentations. Of particular interest among visitors was the hair conditioner base AMIDET APA-22.
