RECYCLING KEY TOPIC IN CALL FOR PPXXI PAPERS
Recycling is one of the key issues that organizers of PPXXI are keen to address in their call for papers. Potential presenters for this international event are invited to submit a 300 word abstract in the English language before November 11, 2022. The PPXXI Conference and Exhibition will be hosted in Lake Buena Vista, Florida (Walt Disney World) on September 25 – 27, 2023.
Zoran Davidovski, Technical Program Chair of PPXXI comments: “The plastic pipe industry has recycled its factory waste since its creation in 1936. For nearly forty years, it has promoted national collection schemes to recycle its systems at end of long service use.”
“No other industry has been able to achieve such a record. These ‘returns’ continue to produce economical and reputational benefits in the form of significant cents and sensibility.”
“Yet in the innovative world of plastic pipes, enough is never enough. We are keen to review and share the latest expertise and experience in the business and technology of recycling plastic pipe systems. The focus is wide from the molecular to the macroeconomic; from chemical to mechanical recycled materials to the creation and manufacturing of new recycled products, R & D, collection schemes, testing and certification, collaborations or partnerships for feedstock management or those focused on improving recycling efficiencies.”
New pipes from old
“Throughout the world, collection schemes are successfully in place to provide for a wide range of quality plastic pipe systems and a myriad of construction products such as infiltration units that harvest stormwater and mitigate flooding and landslides.”
PPCA conferences generally host as many as 400 delegates from more than forty countries. Over 90 papers will be delivered to address technical and marketing issues relating to the design and development testing, installation and operation of plastic pipe systems.
Typically, presentations will offer solutions to engineering issues in the use of plastic pipes system and identify market trends for further growth in the use of these systems. In-depth review will also extend to latest developments in application areas, materials, additives/ingredients, testing, performance and the most recent expertise acquired in the area of sustainability and its assessment. Davidovski points out that papers will be published and promoted extensively through the conference online and offline platforms.

PPCA conferences are self-financing and any profits from one event are rei-nvested in future conferences, educational tools or “spin-off” events.
