As awareness and understanding of sustainability become ever more prevalent, the packaging industry is turning its focus towardssustainable packaging. Lightweight and green packaging has become the bandwagon for the packaging industry to get on in order to balance ecological, economic and social needs.To cater for the demand of the packaging industry's development, CHINAPLAS 2017 will bring to packagingprofessionalsnew technologies, materials and solutionsfrom over the world to facilitate the migrationtowards lightweighting and sustainability.
CHINAPLAS 2017 will be held in China Import & Export Fair Complex, Pazhou, Guangzhou, PR China on May 16 – 19, 2017. It will feature "intelligent manufacturing, high-tech materials and green solutions" with advanced plastics machinery, materials and technologies all found in a 250, 000+ sq. meter exhibition area from over 3,300 renowned suppliers.
In addition, UROLAwill be displayinga ROTARY extrusion blown moulding machine which can produce bottles from HDPE (High Density Polyethylene). Bottles producedhave a very high consistency,withweight reduction averaging to 5% and energy consumption decreased by 30%. This technology produces minimum material wastesandoccupies very little floor space without compromise in surface finish, material distribution and consistency.
With the growth in demand for domestic food packaging and agricultural films,the packaging industry needs a variety of high-performingand specialized packaging solutions, such as those that can maintain freshness ofperishable food and dairy products and extend shelf-lives of products.This trend calls for high barrier propertymaterials and advanced film manufacturing technologies.
BYK will be launching its newly-developed unique additive BYKO2BLOCK-1200 in CHINAPLAS 2017. This additiveis based on platelet-forming modified clay and was developed especially for use in food packaging films. The separated platelets are distributed equally in the polymer matrix, thereby reducing the permeability to gases and water vapour. A small quantity of the additive can lead to a significant improvement in the barrier property while maintainingstable mechanical propertiesand transparency. Moreover, itcan also improve heat deformability.
The POD technology, developed by MACCHI SPA,which will be launched in CHINAPLAS 2017, allows for the production of better, thinner, stronger and cheaper multi-layer PE films. The five-layer structure materialshaveexcellent optical performance and can improve appearance and sealing properties. The secondary sandwich layer materials can provide higher mechanical strength and allow easy down gauging.
Featuring degradable property and regenerative raw materials instead of petroleum, biodegradable plastics have, within a short period, become the alternative for traditional plastics in the quest towards sustainable and green packaging. Biodegradable plastics aremainly utilized in plastic packaging film, agricultural film, disposable plastic bags and disposable plastic tableware; with increasing demands, biodegradable plastics have promising prospects. CHINAPLAS 2017 will showcase some significantadvances in this field.
Taikang POF(polyolefin) heat shrink films, developed byShandong Taikang Biodegradable Packing Materials Co.Ltd., will debut in the upcoming CHINAPLAS. It is currently one of the most advanced environmental friendly plastic packaging materials with higher tearing sound toughness and high anti-impact strength.
REVERDIA will showcase its biosuccinium succinic acid in CHINAPLAS 2017.Biosuccinium is the first non-fossil feedstock derived chemical building block that allows customers in the chemical industry to choose a bio-based alternative with a lower eco-footprint for a broad range of applications, from packaging to footwear.
Poly propylene carbonate(PPC), developed byJilin Boda Oriental New Material Co., Ltd.,is a biodegradable plastic resin of recycled greenhouse gas CO2, and is prepared by polymerization using carbon dioxide and propylene oxide. It can find uses in a wide variety of plastic markets to replace traditional resins such as PE, PP and PA,providing a new and comprehensive solution to sustainability and plastic pollution worldwide.

About CHINAPLAS 2017
CHINAPLAS 2017 is organized by Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd. and Beijing Yazhan Exhibition Services Ltd. and co-organized by China National Light Industry Council - China Plastics Processing Industry Association, China Plastics Machinery Industry Association, Guangdong Plastics Industry Association, Messe Düsseldorf China Ltd., the Plastic Trade Association of Shanghai. The event is also supported by various plastics and rubber associations in China and abroad.
First introduced in 1983, CHINAPLAS has been approved by UFI (The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry) since 2006. CHINAPLAS is exclusively sponsored by the Europe's Association for Plastics and Rubber Machinery Manufacturers (EUROMAP) in China for the 28th time. CHINAPLAS is currently Asia's No. 1 and the world's No. 2 plastics and rubber trade fair.
