China International Pipe Conference announced

Sep 02, 2015

The fourth China International Plastic Pipe Conference will be held in Shanghai on 21 -22 September 2015 at the Jin Jiang Rainbow Hotel in Shanghai. At least thirty presentations will review the latest business and technical developments in a region that continues to witness a sustained boom in plastic pipe technology especially in the construction sector.

Hosted by the China Plastics Piping Association (CPPA), the event is also organized by the Plastic Pipe Conference Association (PPCA) as a spin-off conference to their biannual international conference (Plastic Pipes XVII) held in 2014 year in Chicago.

Zoran Davidovski, spokesman for the China International Pipe Conference expects a high attendance of participants from China as well as from other countries in the region. “China is now the largest producer of plastic pipe systems in the world. The roots of its economic development are attributable to plastic pipes that are locally produced and whose output will exceed 14 million tons this year. The replacement and rehabilitation of aging pipelines coupled with a preference for no-dig technology has led to a significant departure from non-plastic pipe materials.”

“In the rest of Asia, a pattern of similar growth rates are buoyed up by steady investment in the construction and civil engineering sectors. Plastic pipes are providing enormous benefits to public health and sanitation as well as delivering improved water management systems.”

Wide range of issues

Conference presentations and papers will be accompanied by simultaneous translation into Chinese and English. “Our conference program will cover a wide range of issues,” says Davidovski. “Major improvements in quality standards for manufacturing, installation and performance are taking place in the region. We shall therefore review international trends in this area as well as look at the most recent experience and expertise from a regional and world perspective.”

Conference delegates to the China International Plastic Pipe Conference will be drawn from plastic pipe makers, suppliers of raw materials and additives as well as manufacturers of processing and test equipment. End-users such as water supply, drainage, sewer, gas, infrastructure development, and testing/certification bodies will also be represented.

Co-organizers of the conference include China Plastics Processing Industry Association (CPPIA), Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), PE100+ Association, PVC4Pipes Association and The European Plastic Pipes and Fitting Association (TEPPFA).

Main corporate sponsors are Shanghai Banzan Macromolecule Material Co., Ltd and Shanhai Zhanye Exhibition Co.,Ltd. Gold sponsors are Guangzhou lushan New Materials Co., Ltd. And Zhejiang Shuanglin Machinery Co., Ltd. Silver sponsors are Foshan Kebeln Plastic Machinery Co., Ltd and Sichuan Goldstone Orient New Material Equipment Inc.

The next Plastic Pipes XVIII Conference and Exhibition will take place in Berlin’s InterContinental Hotel on 12 – 14 September 2016.
