The blog sends its very best wishes to Ralf Kuhlmann of ExxonMobil, who retires this week as Business Director, Basic Chemicals Europe.
The phrase “a pillar of the industry” might have been invented to describe Ralf. He was President of APPE (Assoc of Petrochemical Producers in Europe) until recently.
He was also an EPCA Board member, President of the “European Science & Engineering Program” foundation of Exxon Chemical Europe, and a member of “European Industrial Research Management Association” and of the Energy, HS&E and Logistics Program Council (CEFIC).
The blog has known Ralf for 15 years. It joins everyone in the European hydrocarbons community in wishing him and his family “all the best” for the future.
