PETnology chose ALL4PACK 2018 st to hold its 21 European Conference for the first time in France
With the 21st PETnology Conference, which will be held in Paris on 26-27 November, 2018, PETnology is charting new waters in connection with ALL4PACK, the important international packaging trade fair.
The decision to hold the conference in Paris underlines the event’s increased internationalization. ALL4PACK 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 & logistics solutions.
FOCUS: TECHNOLOGYIn 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, digitization and eco design.
FOCUS: SUSTAINABILITYKeeping 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 organizations. Converters and machine and equipment manufacturers all along the value added chain are responding by optimizing the sustainability of their products and processes, by collaborating and by presenting new approaches for the manufacturing industry.
FOCUS: PARTNERSHIPSPartnerships and networking is another focus of the conference: networking between industry, nongovernmental organizations and social initiatives. With the help of digital processes in particular, networking can accelerate the development of suitable and – above all – sustainable solutions. The bene ts 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 land fills, such products are recoverable and will be reused, because they make ideal recycling materials. PETnology Europe is an independent, neutral event platform. Under the motto of “connecting comPETence”, PETnology strives to promote communication, bundle knowledge and provide information for the benefit of all segments of the value creation chain, thereby bene fitting our products, our environment and our jobs.
