Success Stories and Upcoming Technological Breakthroughs in the Bio-economy.
Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany, 12-13 May 2020
Despite the challenging environment, innovative companies find markets for their new bio-based building blocks, chemicals and polymers. This conference will introduce you to the success stories and upcoming technological breakthroughs our planet needs for a sustainable future. 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.
The conference will focus on a number of key issues: The wide range of fine chemicals in body care, cosmetics, food ingredients and pharmaceuticals, biorefineries and especially lignin utilisation, which is facing technological breakthroughs, and finally the opportunities and risks arising worldwide from new legal frameworks to limit the negative consequences of conventional plastics. How can this become an opportunity for bio-based polymers? Every year the Innovation Award “Bio-based Material of the Year
” is given to the most innovative material and product on the market. In 2020, six companies will be nominated by an expert jury, out of which the winner will be chosen by the conference participants. Join one of the biggest B2B events of the year and experience the most exciting new developments and strategies in bioeconomy. We will introduce you to the success stories and upcoming technological breakthroughs our planet needs for a sustainable future.
