PET: Strong Technologies in a Challenging Environment

22nd PETnology Conference

connecting comPETence in Paris

With the 22nd PETnology Conference PETnology is charting new waters in connection with All4Pack Paris, the important international packaging trade fair. The decision to hold the conference in Paris underlines the event’s increased internationalisation. All4Pack Paris and PETnology Europe are particularly well matched in terms of their focus, with All4Pack’s mission statements also playing a strong role in the PET process chain: packaging, printing, processing & handling solutions.

Conference and Exhibition

Besides the many presentations the table-top exhibition forms the core of the PETnology conferences. Located in the foyer outside the conference room, which is at the same time the area where the breaks take place, it is the traditional hotspot for networking and allows the exhibitor booths for maximum exposure. The area is open to the All4Pack exhibition halls, allowing direct access to the fair and vice versa.

Focus: Technology

In 2018, PETnology Europe will shine a light on technical and technological developments along the value chain for thermoformed and stretch blow moulded packaging systems. The latest developments in material, films, preforms, caps and closures, bottles and containers, labels, recycling etc. are a response to today’s omnipresent market requirements, in particular circular economy, sustainability, digitisation and eco design.

Focus: Sustainabilty

Keeping the end in mind right from the start: Consumers are calling for environmentally friendly packaging. The companies that bring packaging into circulation, such as manufacturers of consumer goods, food and beverages, are rising to the challenge and working at full steam to find solutions by entering into partnerships with packaging producers and recycling companies as well as environmental and humanitarian organisations. Converters and machine and equipment manufacturers all along the value added chain are responding by optimising the sustainability of their products and processes, by collaborating and by presenting new approaches for the manufacturing industry.

Focus: Partnerships

Partnerships and networking is another focus of the conference: networking between industry, non-governmental organisations and social initiatives. With the help of digital processes in particular, networking can accelerate the development of suitable and – above all – sustainable solutions. The benefits of networking will be in evidence at PETnology Europe 2018, which will highlight technologies and products that aim at conserving resources and producing environmentally friendly and sustainable PET packaging products. Rather than being incinerated and ending up in landfills, such products are recoverable and will be reused, because they make ideal recycling materials.
