The 5th Edition of ACI’s European Biopolymer Summit will be taking place on 14th – 15th February 2018 in Dusseldorf, Germany. The two day event 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 bioenvironmental polymer engineering, most recent innovations, trends and concern as well as solutions adopted in the sector.
The 12th edition of the annual European Bioplastics Conference will showcase just how biopolymers are ‘Making the Difference’ in driving innovations forward for more sustainability, resource efficiency, and functionality.
This week, the 6th International Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable polymers (BIOPOL 2017) took place in Mons, Belgium. he team at the University of Alicante presented several works on PLA and gelatin based multifunctional nanobiocomposites, along with their progress in other European projects (e.g. the valorization of mushroom waste streams into functional additives and polymers, FUNGUSCHAIN project).
As scientific manager in the Barbara project, the principal investigator in the partnership at KTH, Prof. Vilaplana, along with Dr. Balazs Imre (KTH, Sweden) were this week at the 6th Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable Polymers (BIOPOL 2017) in Mons, Belgium. Dr. Imre succesfully presented a poster summarizing the tasks that the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology will accomplish within the time frame of the project, along with their starting results.
SPIRIT Slovenia and the Ministry of economic development and technology organize the Innovation day 2017, presenting opportunities and possibilities within a circular economy offers – from waste over different materials and technologies to various applications (advanced materials, alternative sources, advanced production technologies, nanotechnology and biotechnology) and more.
