daily upated news at News Chinaplast & Interpack postponed Chinaplas 2020 rescheduled to 3-6 August 2020 at NECC in Shanghai In an effort to strengthen the prevention and control of the coronavirus epidemic and to protect the health and safety of all show participants, CHINAPLAS 2020, the 34th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries, originally scheduled from 21-24 April 2020 at National Exhibition and Convention Center(NECC) in Shanghai has been postponed. Hereby, we would like to announce that the show will be rescheduled to 3-6 August 2020 and the venue will remain unchanged at NECC. Messe Düsseldorf is postponing the leading international trade fair Interpack. It will now take place from 25 February to 3 March 2021. In doing so, Messe Düsseldorf is following the recommendation of the crisis management team of the German Federal Government to take into account the principles of the Robert Koch Institute when assessing the risk of major events. Based on this recommendation and the recent significant increase in the number of people infected with the new corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), including in Europe, Messe Düsseldorf has reassessed the situation. In addition, there was the general ruling issued by the city of Düsseldorf on 11 March 2020, in which major events with more than 1,000 participants present at the same time are generally prohibited.

Picks & clicks Most frequently clicked news Here’s a look at our most popular online content of the past two months. The story that got the most clicks from the visitors to was: The global bio-based polymer market in 2019 A revised view (27 January 2020) Turbulent times for bio-based polymers in 2019: PLA sold out despite expansion, as did PHA. Biobased PP became available for the first time, there was increased production of PBAT, PBS, bio-PE, starch-containing polymer compounds and epoxy resins. The production of, particularly, biobased PET decreased. At the same time, there is a lack of support from policy makers: biobased and biodegradable plastics are lumped into the same category as fossil plastics in the Plastic Policy.
