Innovation & Development Forum in Cangzhou: How to save energy within the Film Industry Chain

More than 400 delegates discussed the future Chinese market development tendencies at the “Innovation and Development Forum of BOPP & BOPA Film Industry Chain” early December in Cangzhou, Hebei Province. The event was perfectly organized by the “BOPP Film Professional Committee of CPPIA” and “China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation” (Sinopec).


All notable BO film producers in China and their suppliers took part and were extremely interested in the various topics, i.e. the sustainable development among BOPP & BOPA film industry and the upstream and downstream industry chain. Brückner – the only BO line supplier invited – gave a lecture on how to support film producers to save energy.


Brückner`s sales director Markus Gschwandtner pointed out the various energy savings achieved with Brückner lines, i.e.:

  • Extrusion with high efficiency motors and twin screw technology
  • Additional in-line (waste) fluff dosing to twin screw extrusion
  • Direct drives for extrusion, MDO and pull roll
  • TDO heat recovery system

Delegates paid special attention to Brückner’s innovative environmental care efforts such as total energy management for reduced green house emissions and a smaller carbon footprint as well as advanced stretching technologies, i.e. for high barrier films to replace laminates and thus, to reduce material usage and energy consumption. Gschwandtner`s speech was completed by latest BOPA technologies such as twin screw extrusion with in-line edge trim feedback or high speed/high pressure air knife for excellent process stability and high output.


Finally Markus Gschwandtner thanked the Chinese film producers for their long-standing loyalty and support, making Brückner also in 2009 the clear number 1 supplier for BO equipment in China and the world.
