industry’s response to these new tradeshows,” said Andy Beevers, Events and Magazines Director at AMI. “The two large halls at the Cleveland Convention


Centre are filling up quickly, and we’ve seen strong growth in interest in recent weeks as more market leaders book their booths.” Building on the very successful launch of AMI’s compounding and recycling shows at Essen in Germany in June of this year, the Cleveland event is shaping up to be the largest plastics industry gathering in the US next year. It will feature five free-to-attend conference theatres, plus a networking party for attendees and exhibitors at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the evening of 8 May. Online registration for

From nets to surf


DSM and Thai watersports company Starboard are working together to collect and recycle discarded PA fishing nets collected from the Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea into parts for new surf and paddle boards. DSM upcycles the net waste into an Akulon RePur-


posed grade, which is used for production of fins, fin boxes, SUP pumps and other structural parts that Starboard sells under the NetPositive! brand. DSM said the project contributes to its sustainable development goals and provides work for local communities in India. The UN has estimated that some 640,000 tonnes of


‘ghost fishing nets’ end up in the world’s oceans annually, accounting for around about 10% of marine plastic waste. � www.star-board.bluewww.dsm.com
