- 30 presentations review latest developments
- China is largest producer of plastic pipe systems in the world
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.
China is largest producer of plastic pipe systems in the world
“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 nonplastic pipe materials.”, according to Zoran Davidovski, spokesman for the China International Pipe Conference
“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.”
From raw material suppliers to plastic pipe makers
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. Conference presentations and papers will be accompanied by simultaneous translation into Chinese and English.
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. The next Plastic Pipes XVIII Conference and Exhibition will take place in Berlin’s InterContinental Hotel on 12 – 14 September 2016.
