Innovations, new impetus, and sustainable solutions for global challenges - K 2022 offers all this and much more. The flagship trade fair is the leading business platform for the plastics and rubber industry and will take place in Düsseldorf from October 19 to 26, 2022.

From October 19 to 26, 2022, the world’s largest trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry, K 2022, will take place in Düsseldorf. In addition to the latest technologies and solutions in the field of industrial plastics and rubber processing, the topic of the circular economy is set to play a decisive role at the leading trade fair. The concept of a circular economy has gained immense importance in recent years and presents the entire industry with the challenge of obtaining new material types at least partially from recycled materials and making them usable for every processor - while maintaining the same high quality as new material.

Sustainability and the saving of resources are becoming increasingly important in the wake of climate change. As a global company, LEONHARD KURZ is aware of its responsibility and has therefore been consistently working on innovative processes and products with an improved ecobalance for many years. As part of this endeavor, the surface finishing expert from Fürth was the world’s first company in the plastics industry to introduce a PET take-back system called RECOSYS®. Customers can return the remnants of their transfer foils to KURZ, where they are recycled into a granulate by the name of RECOPOUND®. This can then be used to manufacture robust plastic components through injection molding.

In just a few weeks, the world's largest trade fair for the plastics industry will take place - K 2022. Between 19 and 26 October 2022, the industry will meet in Düsseldorf to present its latest products and innovative processes. This year, one topic in particular is in focus: sustainability. How can the circular economy work in the plastics sector? Which materials and which technologies improve the CO2 balance of products? These and other questions are on the minds of the exhibitors at K 2022.
