September, 2010 - 5th European Bioplastics Conference Promises a Filled Programme
More than 25 expert-speakers from all over the world await visitors at the 5th European Bioplastics Conference. The event will take place on 1/2 December 2010 at the Hilton Hotel in Düsseldorf. Adjoint to the conference, exhibitors from all sectors of the bioplastics industry will showcase their portfolios.
Preparations for the 5th European Bioplastics Conference are entering the “hot phase”. With the programme of the conference nearly finished and the number of exhibitors still growing, it is time to share a “sneak-peek” on what participants can expect during these two days focused on bioplastics. The industryʼs leading business event will feature presentations with topics on technological innovation, newest products, evaluations of bioplastic consumer goods and the status on the discussion on recovery and recycling systems.
Some of the highlights include: Dr. Harald Häger of Evonik will talk about “Polyamides from Renewable Resources – Past, Present, Future”. Bioplastics and consumer goods is the topic tackled by Oliver Schmid of Propper – one of the pioneering companies producing consumer goods of longlife bio-based plastics via injection molding. Fedric Petit of DSM will give some insights into “The next generation; DSM's durable bio-performance materials."
What is more, participants also are actively joining the ranks of exhibitors of the highly specialised exhibition adjoint to the conference. So far, the following exhibitors are confirmed: PolyOne, Mirel Bioplastics by Telles, Purac, Novamont, Sukano, DIN Certco, Kaneka, FKuR, Huhtamaki, Fachagentur Nachwachsender Rohstoffe, A.P.I. SpA, Taghleef Industries, BASF, Kingfa, NatureWorks, Vincotte and BKG. Due to space limitations, there are only a few more places to book – companies interested in showcasing their products should move fast.
