GreenPlast 2022: organization in full swing
With four months to go before the inauguration, over a hundred companies have registered for GreenPlast, the new exhibition-convention dedicated to materials, technologies, and processes for plastics and rubber, taking place in Milan from May 3 to 6, 2022 with a special emphasis on environmental sustainability and energy efficiency.
Registration is open and the number of participants continues to grow. The leading companies in the plastics and rubber industry will present the most innovative circular-economy, Reduce-Reuse-Recycle, and Industry 4.0 solutions at the Rho-Pero fairgrounds: machinery, auxiliaries, and moulds for energy-efficient production processes with technologies designed for recycled, innovative, and bio-based materials; systems for the recovery and recycling of plastics and rubber; low-impact, recyclable virgin materials; articles produced with environmentally sustainable materials.
In addition to the technology showcase, GreenPlast will also feature a new edition of Packaging Speaks Green, the international forum on sustainable packaging with globally renowned opinion leaders, companies, and policymakers who will offer a panorama of the industry and prospects for augmenting sustainability in the packaging industry and downstream markets. The event will be organized into three sessions: food & beverage, plastics and recycling, the pharmaceutical industry.
The first two GreenPlast webinars have also received excellent feedback. They took place in November and December as part of a programme of events leading up to the inauguration in May and featured exhibitors leading initial discussions on some of the key themes of the exhibition. Over 500 participants from all over the world listened to talks by Tomra, Previero-Sorema, and Bandera on “A second life for PET” and Icma San Giorgio, Maris, and Bausano on “Extrusion in plastics and rubber recycling processes”. The next appointment is scheduled on January 18 and 19, 2022, with the third webinar, titled “AreYouR: the Green side of plastics” with the participation of Filtec, Fimic, Gamma Meccanica, and Tecnofer.
The event will be held in parallel with Ipack-Ima, international exhibition for the packaging industry. making it possible to combine the presentation of two different yet highly complementary production spheres. Furthermore, the fairgrounds will also host the concomitant Print4All (dedicated to commercial and industrial printing), Intralogistica Italia (systems for industrial materials handling, warehouse management, materials storage, and picking) and, for the first time in Milan, Pharmintech (processing, and packaging solutions for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmeceutical). These events embody the logic of an integrated supply chain and are an important component of “The Innovation Alliance”.
