Evolution of the Bioeconomy: Survival of the Fittest? Learning from Success.
Despite the harsh environment, a few innovative companies find markets for their new bio-based building blocks, chemicals and polymers. We will introduce you to the technology leaders our planet needs for a sustainable future.
Today, PLA is produced by two leading companies, bio-based PBS has become commercially available and soon the first bio-based PP will enter the market while bio-based PE production capacities are expanded at the same time. Bio-based polymers can be found in almost all application sectors, such as packaging, consumer goods, toys, automotive, textiles or coating. New bio-based building blocks are also available for body care, cosmetics, food ingredients and pharmaceuticals. On top of that, more and more biogenic side streams from the food industry are utilised via biotechnology as part of the circular bioeconomy.
Every year the Innovation Award “Bio-based Material of the Year” is given to the most innovative material and product on the market. In 2019, six companies will be nominated by an expert jury, out of which the winner will be chosen during the conference. Join one of the biggest B2B events of the year and experience the most exciting new developments and strategies in bioeconomy.
