China is showing increasing interest in Plastics Pipes and this market is now the biggest in the world. A conference on Plastic Pipes was organised by the PPCA as a spin off from the successful Plastics Pipes XV conference.

The 2011 International Plastic Pipes Exchange Conference was held on 28-29 November 2011 in Beijing.

With more than 300 participants and 24 presentations both in Chinese and in English, the conference was a great success.

PVC4Pipes was invited to participate and Joel Fumire presented a paper on an innovative design of twin wall PVC pipes. The paper was received with great interest in this region where it is very important to expand lightweight pipes based on PVC material.
