nova Session “Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers – Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2019-2024”

9 March 2020, 10:00 - 16:30 h

Wöllhaf Conference Center, Terminal 1, Airport Cologne/Bonn

 

A revised view on a turbulent and growing market

 
Turbulent times for bio-based polymers in 2019: PLA sold out despite expansion, as did PHA. Bio-based PP available for the first time, increased production of PBAT, PBS, bio-based PE, starch-containing polymer compounds and epoxy resins. Lower production is seen particularly in bio-based PET. At the same time, there is a lack of support from policy makers, who are taking bio-based and biodegradable plastics into collective punishment with fossil plastics in the Plastic Policy.
 
What is the political framework for bio-based polymers and plastics? Which countries offer the best political support? Which bio-based building blocks, polymers and applications are the most promising? Who is ahead in the global race? How does the Biomass Balance Approach fit into the bio-based economy?
 
Join the nova Session, discuss with the leading biopolymer experts from Germany, the Netherlands and the USA and get your questions answered.
 
The international biopolymer expert group of the nova-Institute invites to the nova Session “Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers – Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2019-2024” on 9 March, 2020. The all-day workshop will take place in the conference centre of Cologne/Bonn Airport, which is easily accessible by plane, train and car, so that you can participate without an overnight stay.
 
The workshop will focus on the market and trend report "Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers –Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2019-2024" published in January.
Most authors of the report will participate in the workshop and discuss with you. The nova Session offers the unique opportunity to exchange information about current market developments at the highest level.
With the confirmation mail for your registration you will receive a 15% allowance code for the purchase of the report "Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers –Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2019-2024" (www.bio-based.eu/reports).
 


nova Sessions are an interactive and informative series of events around topical issues of the bio-based and CO2-based economy. Participants are encouraged to bring their own questions and shape the discussion.
