About
The Seminar

The bioplastics industry has rapidly grown over the last few years and it is predicted that production will have tripled by 2026. Nowadays there are clear, sustainable alternatives for particular applications, which strengthen innovative solutions for waste recovery, both organic and synthetic. This waste will be transformed into new raw materials, promoting the circular economy model in its strictest sense.

Our main aim is to promote discussion on new challenges and opportunities in bioplastics and sustainable biocomposites. The Seminar will be organized around the following thematic sessions:

✓ Innovations in bioplastic materials.

✓ Success stories of leading companies.

✓ Standardization and certification.

✓ Environmental impact of bioplastics in open environments.
