6th International Congress on Bio-based Plastics and Composites
Germany and the USA are world leaders in the chemical and plastics industries. Both countries have comprehensive funding schemes in place for research and development in the fields of bio-based chemicals and plastics, but investment and market presence are also showing double-figure growth. This congress aims to provide major players from the US and German bio-based chemicals and plastics industries with an opportunity to present and discuss their latest developments and strategies.
The congress theme covers the whole area of biomaterials, additives and industrial biotechnology. Biomaterials are based on the direct use or the biotechnological modification of starch, sugar, plantoil, cellulose/natural fibres as well as special biomolecules such as rubber or lignin. This group of biomaterials includes bio-based plastics, biodegradable ones as well as durables, Wood Polymer Composites (WPC), natural fibre reinforced plastics and natural rubber.
