The vibrant stalls of 900 exhibitors from more than 18 countries featured in 'IndiaPlast-2019' was for a noble cause-- to demonstrate the reuse of plastics and address the issue of environmental hazards posing greater risk to health than climate change. The message of 'plastic recycling' was amplified at the fair that win up on Monday here in Greater Noida, where exhibitors displayed units for plastics packaging, printing, mould making and recycling of plastic.
The five-day fair which was organised by Plastics Machinery Manufacturers Association of India (PMMAI) and Triune Exhibitors Pvt Ltd demonstrated blow moulding machines, extruders & extrusion lines, injection moulding machines, vacuum thermoforming machines, rotating moulding machines,packaging machines, 3D printing machines,Pre-processing and recycling machines, post processing machines, reactive or reinforced resins machines, printing and finishing machines,bag and sack making equipment and plastic welding equipment.
Founder of Espoir Paper & Polymers Ashok Aggarwal said, "The idea should be to recycle the plastics instead of banning them. Blanket ban on the single use plastic will not solve any environmental related issues."
