Interactive Forum on Bioplastics to be Held in New York

Several questions arise on bioplastics, which includes does Earth require bioplastics? and will bioplastics be profitable? Some are related to the environment. Hence, there is a need for clarification to avoid misconceptions.

Though suppliers have made significant innovations, less interaction with stakeholders hinders information flow, as well as the growth of bioplastics. Hence, an interactive forum is required to understand and to develop future bioplastics based on users’ requirements. BioPlastek 2011 is one such interactive forum, which is to be held from June 27 to 29, 2011. The location of the event is at Waldorf-Astoria, New York.

H.J. Heinz will deliver the keynote presentation. Presentations will be provided by several industry leaders including Pepperidge Farm, Rubbermaid, Xerox Canada, Mountain Valley Spring Water, Campbell Soup, Auto21 and The Woodbridge Group.

BioPlastek forum also includes sessions on emerging durables, nonwovens, additives, automotive and packaging. Thus, the event will provide more than 40 presentations on bioplastics value chain. This helps to assess the present and the future industry trends.

Innovative bio-monomers and bio-sources will be featured at BioPlastek 2011. Biopolymers such as PET, nylon 6 and nylon 66 are now available for various applications. This has been made possible with the innovation of monomers like   bio-xylene, bio-adipic acid and bio-caprolactam. Avantium will exhibit the  performance of specialty bio-monomers used for polyester production. These monomers surpass PET performance in bottle applications. The biobased intermediates to be presented at the forum include strains of microorganisms from TetraVitae Bioscience and yeast from SyntheZyme.
