The Taiwan Plastics Industry Association recently held it 20th Second General meeting at which the organization commended its most outstanding members.

In recognition of changing global conditions, Chairman Benker Liao strongly advocated for the transformation of the plastics industry, suggesting that the association and its membership focus on the high-value market, while, at the same time, taking the necessary steps to shift from a major emitter into a high-value player through digital transformation and net-zero carbon emissions.

Liao said that the plastics industry, as the third most important manufacturing sector in Taiwan, is in a transition to high-value-added materials such as high-performance biodegradable and biomedical polymer materials, nano-composites, environmentally-friendly plastics, and high-functional materials.

To cite an example, South Plastic Industry Co., Ltd. has tied up with Polymateria, a British company, to create a new generation of biodegradable plastic, Cycle+, as a food packaging material by adding its bio-based additives to the standard plastic formula.

The new formulation breaks down into carbon dioxide, water and biomass within two years, leaving no microplastics or harmful substances in the environment.

In response to inflation and the evolving international situation, the association is helping its members achieve technological upgrading and digital transformation. Toford Plastic Manufacturing Corp., established 40 years ago, produced a variety of high-grade PVC hoses with its strong manufacturing and research and development (R&D) capabilities.

In recent years, the company has been undertaking digital management, reducing consumables, and developing proven PVC hoses with a substantially longer lifecycle, minimizing the use of plastics and making a contribution to environmental protection.
