A number of high-profile guests, including Michael Fallon MP, the Business and Enterprise Minister, gathered at the ‘Plastics the Facts’ exhibition which opened at the department of Business, Innovation and Skills in London on July 23.

Fallon opened the event, which is being held by the British Plastic Foundation (BPF) and is open until August 2 to much fanfare and support from industry leaders and government officials.

The aim of the exhibition is to convey the true facts about plastics to government ministers, Civil servants and other official bodies who may play a role in the future of plastics manufacture, whether this be on the small scale of manufacturing acrylic panels locally, or on a larger global scale.

The BPF display gives an idea of how successful UK manufacturing companies, including the aerospace, furniture, healthcare, and building sectors are, and how important plastics are in the fight to make our economy a low carbon one.

The BPF commented that the display it has put together shows that the plastics industry is crucial to manufacturing in the country and how difficult it would be for UK business to compete without the industry.

One of the main aims of the exhibition is to show people how many beneficial properties plastics have. This includes everything from its low conductivity and weight to its ability to be recycled. With the display being held close to Westminster Abbey, it is to be hoped that it will catch the eye of some of the tourists who flock to the area.
