EVENT PREVIEW | FAKUMA 2021


Fakuma opens its doors again to plastics industry


Main image: The Fakuma fair last took place as an in-person event in 2018


The Fakuma exhibition, one of the major trade fairs for the plastics industry, returns to its home in Friedrichshafen, Germany, next month. The in-person event takes place on 12-16 October a year after it was held as a virtual event in 2020 as a consequence of restrictions around the Covid pandemic. The virtual platform used in 2020 is once again available for visitors to view exhibitor products online. The 27th Fakuma is happening in the shadow of the continuing pandemic and event organiser PE Schall has appropriate hygiene and safety precau- tions in place for all attendees. The company says Covid-related measures have been extensively coordinated with the responsible authorities and implemented on the basis of rules set by the state of Baden-Württemberg. The international trade fair is well known as a technical event for injection moulding, but, as in recent years, the 2021 edition has a strong focus on sustainability and the circular economy, including plastics recycling. Annemarie Schur, Fakuma project manager,


says: “It’s plainly apparent that the exhibitors have become increasingly eager to address the currently

negative image which is unfortunately associated with plastics. The issue of recycling and the transformation from a linear to a circular economy are on the agenda for many companies and thus Fakuma will also make a contribution to increasing the awareness of circular economy, recyclability, product lifecycles and product design to an even greater extent.” In this preview, Plastics Recycling World highlights


some of the exhibitors specifically connected with the plastics recycling sector. To find out about all Fakuma exhibitors, visit www.fakuma-messe.de.


BYK BYK says it is utilising its presence at this year’s Fakuma show to spotlight innovative additives, such as RECYCLOBYK 4372 for improving the recycling of HDPE material that can be used, for example, in pallets and bottle crates designed for outdoor use. This is achieved by means of targeted restabilisation of the polymer matrix. It says the RECYCLOBYK 4371 additive is especially helpful in restabilising PP and polyolefin compounds that are exposed to particularly aggressive substances.
