Goals

ico-bios

The main aim of the Seminar is to promote discussion on new challenges and opportunities in bioplastics and sustainable biocomposites.

The seminar will be organized around the following thematic sessions:

The latest innovations in biodegradable plastic materials and/or plastic materials obtained from renewable sources.

Success stories of leading companies.

Standardization, certification and LCA.

Biotechnology and the sustainable waste recovery options offered by these materials.

Topics

Biodegradable materials Fuentes renovables Innovations in biodegradable plastic materials and/or plastic materials obtained from renewable sources We’ll assess the most important trends in this area that are driving the search for more environmentally friendly alternative sources, some of which have the capacity for biodegradation, and which also provide a response to consumer demand for more environmentally sustainable consumption. Success stories Casos de éxito Success stories of leading companies We’ll take a general look at the trends and role of bioplastics in the economy of the future, and leading companies will present their success stories and most innovative applications in the food, construction, textile, fishing and agriculture industries. Standardization, certification and LCA Normalizacion ACV Standardization, certification and LCA Certification and eco-labelling provide an opportunity for companies to inform their customers about the quality of their biodegradable products and/or products from renewable sources. In terms of product sustainability, LCA enables us to assess the environmental impact associated with these kinds of products, which are becoming increasingly more common on the market. Biotechnology biotecnologia Biotechnology Biotechnology offers the chance to replace chemical processes with new processes that are more environmentally friendly, efficient and sustainable, and based on the use of biodegradable raw materials and/or raw materials from renewable sources. Biotechnology provides a wide range of powerful tools. Major advances have already been made, such as the development of chemical building blocks, enzymatic polymerization, the ability to produce safer and more effective biopharmaceuticals, and the reuse of CO2 as a raw material.
