Plastics Technology Extrusion 2020 Conference

During our two-and-a-half-day event, business owners, plant managers, process engineers and manufacturing personnel will be brought up to speed on technology developments and best practices 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.

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 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.
