Bioplastics have generated much excitement and development activity, but also much confusion and thought-provoking questions. Terms like “drop-ins” and “biodegradable” are not well understood. It is not clear whether the new biobased materials will fit into, or be separate from, the existing petrochemical value chain. The viability of nonfood biomass feedstock alternatives is still in question. And, it remains to be seen if objective comparative analyses will corroborate the claimed economic benefits of biobased materials over their petro-derived counterparts.
Understanding these and other complex issues and how they could impact bioplastics’ true potential will be the focus of the upcoming BioPlastek 2012 Forum on Bioplastics. The Forum will take place on March 28-30, 2012 in Arlington, Virginia, USA.
The BioPlastek 2012 Forum will build on the extraordinary success of the inaugural forum held last June in New York which drew over 250 attendees and garnered rave reviews.
The BioPlastek 2012 Forum is where to find out how the bioplastics value chain will likely evolve together with strategies for implementation. Program details will be posted soon at http://bioplastek.com
