Stage is set as conference devoted to all things extrusion heads for Chicago area. New partnership with TAPPI promises a deeper dive into film.

It’s that time again.

Plastics Technology is bringing the world of extrusion to Rosemont, Ill. October 13-15 at The Extrusion 2020 Conference. During this two-and-a-half-day event, business owners, plant managers, process engineers and manufacturing personnel will be brought up to speed on technology developments impacting all types of extrusion operations.

Each day will consist of a General Session that will be of interest to all extrusion processors, as well as an afternoon of concurrent sessions that will drill down into specific processes: Film, Sheet, Compounding, and Pipe/Profile/Tubing.

Extrusion 2020 Conference

And this year we have added a new element: a half-day symposium organized by TAPPI on Film Processing and Coating in a Circular Economy that will take place the afternoon of Oct. 12. The TAPPI International Flexible Packaging & Extrusion Symposium is a one-half day pre-Conference event which will feature today’s leading experts in film processing and coating for flexible packaging. They will discuss leading-edge topics on emerging techniques and technologies which are creating new pathways toward a circular economy. Specific topic areas will include:

  • Polymer stabilization developments for a circular economy.
  • Recycling innovations for flexible packaging structures.
  • Sustainability-focused solutions for consumer packaging.
  • Developments in sustainable barrier systems for flexible packaging.
  • Converting equipment solutions for more sustainable flexible packaging.
