On April 13th, CHINAPLAS 2021 opens at Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center with the theme of “New Era • New Potential • Innovation for Sustainability”. CHINAPLAS will be held for four days (April 13-16) with more than 3,600 exhibitors from 50 countries and regions.

“Under the COVID-19, we are very grateful that CHINAPLAS together with 3,600+ exhibitors will be marching on a large scale of 350,000sqm of exhibition area, and it is the first of its kinds being held after pandemic, and the only international plastics and rubber industries exhibition in 2021”, Stanley Chu, Chairman of Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd., the show organizer, said.

Innovation in plastics and rubber technologies

Throughout the years, CHINAPLAS has gradually transformed from a trading platform for buyers and sellers to a professional exhibition for advance technologies to facilitate the development of high-end, high-efficiency and high-quality manufacturing. Entering the 5G era, 5G materials with low dielectric loss, high thermal conductivity and high electromagnetic shielding, such as thermoplastic composite materials for 5G base station filters and PCB board, LCP film grade resin for 5G antenna and ultra-thin cooling fan with groundbreaking innovations are showcased.

New energy vehicles are also in its thriving development. New energy vehicles with reliable charging performance, high-performance materials for electronic components and equipment, antibacterial/bacteriostatic technology, etc., are highly sought. Environment-friendly packaging is in urgent need as well. Recycled and biodegradable plastics are under the spotlight, particularly those smart packaging solutions with functions of indication, preservation and user interactions. For medical applications, medical and food grade materials, repeated steam sterilization and 3D printing are highlighted. In addition, innovative plastics technology has also emerged in the building materials, sports and leisure sectors continuously, shaping a better life for mankind.

Embraces environmental protection and recycling with pioneer technology

It is time for the industries to embrace circular economy, biodegradable plastics, energy saving and emission reduction under the stringent requirements on “CO2 emission peak”, “carbon neutrality” and “plastics ban”. This is not only hot discussion and challenge for all sectors, but also implies enormous business opportunities for a brand-new market. Many related solutions have become the focus of CHINAPLAS, including 100% biodegradable resins, R-PET and R-PS that can replace new materials, agricultural film recycled particles, single-material solutions, recycling equipment from entry-level to professional-level, eco-friendly extruders and packaging equipment that can be matched with environmentally friendly new materials, etc. “Bioplastics zone”, “Recycled Plastics Zone” and “Recycling Technology Zone” have been set up in the exhibition. Meanwhile, a number of events are held to discuss development trends and technological innovations.

One of the signature events, the 2nd edition of “CHINAPLAS x CPRJ Plastics Recycling & Circular Economy Conference and Showcase” was held on the day prior to the opening of CHINAPLAS (April 12) with overwhelming response. With three major themes, namely innovative material technologies and circular economy, advanced recycling technologies closing the loop of industry chain, innovative plastic packaging and sustainable development, the event united the upstream and downstream of the plastics recycling industry chain to discuss the macro trends and hot topics of the global circular economy to achieve sustainable development.

The organizer invited government officials and leading industry organizations, brands, materials and machinery suppliers from all over the world to discuss the international trends and policy guidance of plastics recycling, recycling classification from developed countries and regions, innovative achievements of recycling and utilization, etc., which clearly outlined the landscapes and prospects of the plastics recycling industry in Asia and the rest of the world. The event attracted more than 400 industry elites to participate.
