Following the outstanding review and strong interest on the Bioplastics & Degradable Plastics Zone and Rubber Machinery & Equipment Zone in the previous edition, the show organiser decided to set up these two zones again in the 26th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries (CHINAPLAS 2012), which will be held on 18 – 21 April 2012 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
It will be the second time around for the Bioplastics Zone but in this edition, a 40% increase in the exhibition space allotted for this zone is anticipated. With the growing global concern on 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 like PLA, PHA, PBS, PPC, PCL, PVA, TPS, PA and PTT. The renowned exhibitors include Cardia, Danisco, Ecomann, Esun, Hisun, Kingfa, Mirel Plastics, NatureWorks, Nuvia, etc.
Highlighting advanced technology and latest development on bioplastics, the 4th International Conference on Bioplastics and the Applications will be held concurrently with CHINAPLAS 2012. Like the last edition held in 2011, speakers from the leading bioplastics suppliers will be invited. Overseas and Chinese plastics associations will continue to support the conference.
As the relaunch of Rubber Machinery & Equipment Zone in 2011 received overwhelming response, the organiser decided to continue this zone. It is expected the size of the zone will be doubled in 2012. Numerous exhibitors have confirmed their participation, such as Tung Yu, Desma, Yang Ming, Double Elephant, Hengwei, Ningbo Chap, Shanghai Deren, Yuyao Huacheng, etc. Exhibits at the zone will include rubber machineries, rubber processing equipment, testing equipment, die & mould for products like rubber conveyor belt, rubber hose, medical rubber products, daily rubber products, rubber sealing products, automotive rubber products, etc. A Rubber Suppliers Guide will be tailor-made for visitors to facilitate their search.
Another highlight of the show is the return of Korean Pavilion, contributing to the rise in the number of pavilions to 12. The pavilion last appeared in CHINAPLAS 2009. With the tremendous support of Korea Petrochemical Industry Association, Korean Pavilion will again demonstrate its presence in CHINAPLAS next year and numerous Korean companies will showcase their flagship products. In the first half year of 2011, Korea is one of the top 10 importing countries / regions of plastics machines for China. The show organiser believes that the return of Korean Pavilion will be welcomed by the visitors.
Staging its 26th edition, CHINAPLAS 2012 will reach an exhibition area of 200,000 sqm and occupy all 17 halls at Shanghai New International Expo Centre and halls extending at the Central Square. More than 2,600 exhibitors from 35 countries and regions and over 100,000 visitors from 140 countries will get together in this vast professional plastics and rubber event.

GNEUSS: MRS Extruder
The Multi Rotation System extruder is ideal for the processing of PET-r. It permits the processing of PET without pre-drying but by using a simple water ring vacuum system to process the PET to a high quality product. This is achieved by means of its unique and patented processing section. Based on a conventional single screw extruder, the Multi Rotation Section (MRS) is a drum containing eight satellite single screws, driven by a ring gear and pinion transmission. The “barrels” cut into the drum are approximately 30 % open and provide optimum exposure of the melt. The devolatilising performance is 50 times greater than that of a conventional single-screw extruder – and this at a vacuum of only 25 to 40 mbar.

Windmöller & Hölscher: VAREX & AQUAREX
VAREX universal blown film line operates on one of the lowest specific energy consumption levels in the industry. With 0.3 – 0.35 kW/kg, VAREX is about 30% more energy-efficient than its closest competitor. The individual components of the line are optimally tuned to each other to deliver an absolutely constant bubble circumference. When producing flat film, this does away with the need for trimming the film, resulting in significant savings in material and / or energy for reprocessing. Each VAREX line features OPTIFIL P, the innovative thickness profile control system. The AQUAREX blown film line addresses yet another environmental aspect. Multi-layer, high-clarity film, produced with an upside down water-quench process, is a perfect substitute for PVC- film, widely used for the production of infusion bags (IV-bags).
