Retal Active at Sustainability Focused Interplastica

Interplastica, the leading trade fair for plastics and rubber in Russia and Eastern Europe, was back from 28th – 31st January in Moscow, after a Covid hiatus, featuring over 650 stands and with around 25,000 visitors expected over the four-day event

The focus of this year’s event saw the introduction of a ‘Recycling Solutions’ exhibition area, as well as ‘Additive Minded’, a project centered on applied science, commerce and industry expert debate.

Representatives from global plastic packaging manufacturer RETAL attended the event to meet customers and take part in the debate, with Interplastica offering a great opportunity for face-to-face conversations after two years of predominately virtual meetings.

Maxim Filippov, commercial deputy director, RETAL Kaluga, says: “We were impressed with the scale of Interplastica and also the relevance of sustainability topics raised, including new projects in plastics recycling and manufacturing.”

Igor Romanovsky, RETAL Kaluga film sales manager, adds: “Interplastica offered an interesting platform to learn about the latest trends in the polymer industry and to conduct an annual analysis of our customers’ end product range as part of a volatile market condition. Events like these are always a breath of fresh air, especially after the pandemic.”

One of the important stages of the exhibition for RETAL was a conference with companies of related industries to discuss trends and future directions.

Alena Muravchenko, RETAL marketing director in Russia, comments: “The key topic of the trade fair was sustainability. As a company committed to this strategy, it is very important to exchange experience between the leading Russian and world companies producing high-technology solutions for recycling and the circular economy. I am very glad that we are progressing and implementing solutions, improving CSR indicators following the market trends across RETAL.”
