The launch of Compounding World Expo and Plastics Recycling World Expo in 2018 in Essen, Germany received an overwhelming positive response from the plastics industry. The co-located events created a marketplace for stakeholders from across the supply chain to make new connections, source innovative technology and grow their business. Attendees came away from this event energised from 2 days of networking and learning.
The exhibition hosted over 180 exhibitors demonstrating their latest technology and services from every part of the plastics supply chain from raw materials to end-of-life solutions. Visitors had a combined purchasing budget of over €4.6 billion.
Polymer is a universal and versatile material. We at Nordson Polymer Processing Systems believe in its capabilities and our ability to process it - no matter its state. We handle virgin polymers as well as recycled materials. We process it in its pure and its compounded form. We master it when sensitive to changes in temperature, moisture, and pressure, or when it comes in large or small quantities.
Our brands share a 110+ year legacy of handling polymers. Thousands of our systems manage the melt stream, helping customers create high-quality end products for various industries.
Running alongside the exhibition was the Compounding World Expo and Plastics Recycling World Expo conference, where speakers demonstrated their expertise on the biggest issues facing the industry and their predictions for the future.
