Bioplastics is entering a new epoch and AIMPLAS is on the cutting edge, bringing 20 experts together to square up the challenges the next chapter of bioplastics faces.
In the sixth edition of its international Biopolymers and Sustainable Composites seminar, which takes place on March 1st and 2nd 2017 at AIMPLAS' headquarters in Valencia, Europe's leading companies and innovators in bioplastics will discuss the obstacles and opportunities facing the sector and share their expertise in raw materials and commercialisation.
The seminar, sponsored by BASF, Kuraray and Novamont, has been spread across two days.
On the first day, trends and the role of bioplastics in the economy of the future will be tackled, then the main developments in raw materials and innovative applications in the packaging sector will be discussed.
The second day will begin with a review of the current regulations on the use of biopolymers at industrial level, as well as an overview of biotechnology and biopolymer production. The seminar will end with a discussion between different speakers, which will touch upon real life cases of success and the state-of-the-art industrial applications in the food, construction, textiles, fishing and agriculture industries.
As in previous editions, the meeting will also feature an exhibition area, allowing participating companies to show their latest innovations and launches.
