About AWPP

It has been more than 16 years since the Asian Workshop on Polymer Processing (AWPP) was first held in Bangkok, Thailand back in 2001. Since then, Asia has become the production base of plastic materials and plastic products distributed all over the world. Therefore, it is important to set up an international conference in Asia which provides an opportunity to exchange technology and information in the field of plastic materials and plastic products. Previous AWPPs have successfully contributed to technology exchanges and built up a network of connections between industry and academia, by creating the opportunity for researchers and engineers from across Asia to gather in a single place. Newly developed technologies which can support leading-edge industries are of great interest to all participants. The conference will help researchers and engineers communicate with each other, give useful information and create the chance for cooperative research for all the attendees.
