A representation of 16 people from the Polish Recycling Association took part in this year’s Chinaplas, the largest trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry in the world, which took place in Shanghai in April. The Polish delegation arrived on site at the invitation of the organizer, and its goal was to strengthen economic relations, including obtaining direct contacts with equipment and machinery manufacturers and examining sales markets for Polish recyclates. This is part of the strategy to strengthen the position of Polish recycling on foreign markets.

The mission of the Polish delegation at the Chinese recycling industry fair was to promote our country and exchange knowledge and experience in waste processing and recycling. Representatives of the association had the opportunity to learn about the latest trends in the industry and strengthen cooperation with suppliers of equipment and machines, which has been greatly hampered by the pandemic and has been carried out mainly through European intermediaries for the last 4 years.

In addition to networking and purchasing purposes, an important aspect of the visit to this year’s Chinaplas was finding a market for Polish recyclates, specifically semi-finished products in the form of regranulates. The reason why this is necessary is the lack of a functioning EPR system in Poland that would regulate the use of mandatory recyclate. Therefore, domestic recyclers are forced to look for buyers abroad, even in China.

A meeting with an international group of recyclers is always an excellent opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences between markets, which is why we happily accepted the invitation to this event. We can also confidently say that one of the successes of our delegation is the renewal of relations after the COVID-19 pandemic, which significantly hindered our contact and trade with our partners. Now we want to take the next step and build a stable position of Polish recycling companies on the global market. We sincerely hope that our economic mission will bring closer the opening of foreign markets for Polish regranulates, which will allow domestic recycling to significantly accelerate further development. – says Sławomir Pacek, President of the “Polish Recycling” Association.

CHINAPLAS is currently the largest international trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry in the world. This year’s thirty-sixth edition of the event took place in Shanghai on April 23-26.
