China • With the theme of “Greenovation for a Smart Future”, Chinaplas 2017–one of Asia’s largest plastics and rubber trade fairs, will feature “Intelligent Manufacturing”, “High-tech Materials” and “Green Solutions” with a spectrum of innovative exhibits to senior-level, professional visitors.
Following the United Nations’ announcement of 17 sustainable development goals, 2016 was marked by global efforts to move towards a more sustainable society. According to the Chinaplas’ organizers, the manufacturing industry has no other viable strategic option than to adopt green solutions as it moves forward.
Given such international economic pressures, organizers will bring together and highlight a series of green solutions, such as advanced equipment that can achieve zero VOC emissions; and degradable and recyclable materials that enable lightweight, multifunctional and low-carbon products.
One of the highlighted technologies will be the first globally launched, solvent-free rotogravure printing machine. Developed by Zhongshan Sotech Printing Machinery, it will make its debut at Chinaplas. The machine has use in the manufacturing of flexible packaging, and in the packaging of food and beverage products, daily chemical products and medical supplies. It enables manufacturers to eliminate VOCs. Its manufacturer reports that this equipment uses cold light to solidify colored inks without the need for solvents and VOCs.
Chinaplas will be held at the China Import & Export Fair Complex, Pazhou, Guangzhou, PR China, on May 16-19. please visit www.chinaplasonline.com/ for more information.
