European Bioplastics, the association representing the interests of the bioplastics industry in Europe, has issued a Call for Papers for the 15th European Bioplastics Conference taking place on 1 – 2 December 2020 in Vienna, Austria. The event will focus on the latest developments in bioplastics as well as on environmental aspects and opportunities for growth in the bio-based plastics sector. Experts are invited to submit proposals for a presentation on the following topics:
- Bio-based and/or biodegradable polymers – latest material and process innovations,
- Packaging innovations, especially food contact solutions
- Additives for bioplastics, such as bio-based plasticisers, flame retardants etc.
- Mechanical and chemical recycling of bio-based plastics,
- The role of compostable and/or bio-based plastics in national and international waste legislation,
- Sustainability assessment with focus on LCA of bio-based plastics
- New (durable) applications introduced in 2020,
- Sneak preview 2020 – product and material pre-launch, and
