European speakers include Ton Emans, president of Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE, Brussels / Belgium;, who will present on European recycling trends and developments.

The second event, dubbed “The City of Tomorrow”, will feature a circular structure at the centre of the exhibition that will showcase a sustainability model covering green and alternative raw materials, energy-efficient machinery, plastics and rubber applications as well as recycling. Visitors will be able to explore the exhibit by means of interactive displays and game booths.

Adsale expects Chinaplas 2014 to draw more than 2,900 international exhibitors, spread across an area of more than 220,000 m², and including more than 3,200 different machines.
