Energy saving and environmental protection are the future trends in the plastics and rubber industries with the uprising global awareness of environment protection. There are increasing demands for innovative energy-saving technologies, renewable and recyclable materials for production enhancement and products’ competitiveness. According to a latest report from Freedonia, the worldwide demand on bioplastics (resins that are biodegradable or derived from plant-based sources) will increase to 900,000 tones in 2013 at an annual growth rate of 35.1%. The driving force is mainly from consumers’ demand for environmentally sustainable products and the development of bio-based feedstocks for commodity resins. In the light of the growing attention to green plastics, the organizer of CHINAPLAS will host a series of concurrent activities under the theme of “Green Plastics -Our Goal-Our Future” in ties with its 2010 event. As the world’s leading information and technological exchange platform for the plastics and rubber industries, CHINAPLAS is undoubtedly the ideal platform for the discussion on green plastics and how 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) be adopted to current and future plastics and rubber industries, and to highlight the importance and influence of “going green” in achieving sustainable development for the industry. CHINAPLAS 2010 will be held from April 19 to 22, 2010 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre Pudong, Shanghai, PR China. Only two weeks ahead of Shanghai 2010 World’s Expo, CHINAPLAS 2010 will echo to their theme of “Better City, Better Life”, by demonstrating green plastics and rubber technologies as one of the key elements to green our city and to make a better life for future.
As one of the aims of the event to nurture the green development in the industries, green messages will be conveyed at the fairground of CHINAPLAS 2010. Green Corners will be set up to share green tips and display exhibitors’ latest green technology on plastics and rubber products. In addition, a 3-day industrial forum on green technology will be staged from April 19-21, 2010 to examine the development of green plastics industry in different parts of the world, including PR China, Japan, Europe, USA, etc, as well as the applications of green plastics in various user industries. Through the industrial forum, participants will gain a deeper understanding of plastics being a eco-friendly material contributing to a better living environment. Real case sharing about applications of green plastics in different industries such as automobile, building & construction, packaging, E&E, IT and telecommunications will be held. Participants of the forum can confer with leading green plastics and rubber solution providers and experts from different countries and can network with manufacturers that adopted the green technologies.
