The Fakuma, an international trade fair for plastics processing held in Friedrichshafen, Germany, is an acknowledged industry and technology barometer. Visitors are provided with a comprehensive overview of all plastics technologies like injection moulding, extrusion, thermoforming or 3D printing. The issues of digitalisation, networking, extended process integration and system solutions for equipment and peripherals have long since arrived at the plastics processing machines as well and will continue to drive the industry. Plastics don’t have a very good image amongst the general public these days – pollution of the world’s oceans with plastic waste is in the news almost every day. The plastics industry has a real reputation problem. Objective clarification and a differentiated discussion are thus necessary in this regard. The term circular economy has long since established itself in the plastics industry. The question is no longer "whether or not," but rather simply "how".
