Show Preview Chinaplas 2012 The 26th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries, CHINAPLAS 2012, which is dedicated to showcasing the worldclass cutting-edge plastics and rubber technologies, will be held at Shanghai New International Expo Centre on April 18-21, 2012. This year again, there will be a special themed zone dedicated to bioplastics but which will be 40% bigger than last year. With the growing global concern with regard to green manufacturing, bioplastics is inevitably the focus in the plastics industry, with enormous potential in the market. As the international platform for advanced technology in the plastics and rubber industries, CHINAPLAS 2012 will introduce the world’s leading bioplastics suppliers and their products, such as PLA, PHA, PBS, PPC, PCL, PVA, TPS, PA and PTT. The renowned exhibitors include Cardia, Danisco, Ecomann, Esun, Hisun, Kingfa, NatureWorks, etc. Highlighting advanced technology and the latest development in bioplastics, the 4th International Conference on Bioplastics and their Applications will be held at the same time as CHINAPLAS 2012. As in 2011, speakers from the leading bioplastics suppliers will share their expertise with the audience. The conference is supported by overseas and Chinese plastics associations. This article contains details of a number of companies exhibiting at Chinaplas 2012. In addition please see the detailed floor map in the centre of the magazine.
