This Wednesday and Thursday, Dr. Lidia García presented project BARBARA at the 5th Edition of ACI’s European Biopolymer Summit in Dusseldorf, Germany. The two day event was specially designed to bring together senior executives, key industry experts, researchers and bioplastic manufacturers, to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of bio-environmental polymer engineering, most recent innovations, trends and concern as well as solutions adopted in the sector.
Dr. Lidia García, representing TECNO packaging, presented the outline and recent advances in the BARBARA project, along with other projects of the newly established spin-off. TECNO packaging is in charge of the development of composite masterbatches using the functionalized bioplastic matrices within the BARBARA project.
The Conference also provided platform to meet experts form other industries such food & beverage, product & packaging and automotive to discuss the latest strategies on commercialisation, application and market access of biopolymer products and methods to overcome current market challenges and maximise the opportunities.
