Chinaplas 2019 is Asia's leading plastics and rubber trade fair

Chinaplas, Asia’s No.1 plastics and rubber trade fair and a prominent platform for innovative technology and communications, is highly responsive to customer needs and new trends, and always brings new elements, perpetually providing energy to the plastics and rubber industries. This year, Chinaplas highlights the circular economy.

Fostering the circular economy is a global consensus and is a major Chinese economic and social development strategy to achieve sustainable development. As such, great potential and bounteous market opportunities arise with it.

Big names adopt recycled plastics for appealing benefits

The modelling of big brands has massive influence on the implementation of the circular economy, and more and more big names have announced environmental protection policies of recycling. In 2017, Adidas sold one million pairs of running shoes made from ocean plastic waste. It plans to stop using new plastics by 2024 when only recycled plastics will be used as raw materials.

Kraft Heinz announced that by 2025, 100 per cent of their packaging will be recyclable, reusable or compostable. Leading companies such as Coca-Cola, Unilever, Volvo, IKEA, Nike, and H&M have also announced plans to use recycled plastics. Meanwhile, Gree Electric Appliances, a home appliance giant, has also invested heavily in setting up a renewable resource company to engage in the recycling and dismantling of used electrical and electronic products, realising an ecological cycle of the home appliance industry chain.

The core of circular economy is the efficient use and recycling of resources, and plastic waste recycling is an indispensable part. It is predicted that by 2025, China, one of the world's largest waste plastics recycling countries, will produce urban solid waste amounting to nearly a quarter of the world's total. By improving the recycling rate of waste plastics, the development of a circular economy can be greatly promoted.
