  • Network with colleagues, customers, suppliers; initiate new collaborations.

What does the Conference cover?

All technical and business issues related to sustainable plastic bottles and containers:

  • Design
  • Development
  • Manufacture
  • Filling
  • End-of-life stewardship

PET or HDPE?  EBM or SBM?

All blow moulding technologies and polymeric materials are included. Customers do not buy PET or HDPE, EBM or SBM bottles; they buy suitable, sustainable and affordable packaging solutions. Any technology/material offering such solutions competes for a share of the market. Moreover, technology is forever expanding: nowadays, polyolefins can be processed through ISBM technology, while PET can be extruded into containers with handles. Therefore, it is artificial and unhelpful for a conference to address just one technology/material class.

The blow moulding industry

In 2017, circa 31 million metric tonnes of thermoplastic polymers have been processed by blow moulding.  They were converted into bottles, jars, jerricans, plastic drums, IBCs, toys, automotive fuel tanks, various other containers and technical parts – worth a total of circa $650 billion.  Spread across the globe, blow moulding is a sophisticated industry, utilising complex technical and commercial processes. It benefits from continuous innovation in materials, machinery, process and product design. It utilises a plethora of channels to market and provides solutions to the complex requirements of a demanding set of customers.
