13th European Bioplastics Conference | Berlin, Germany

04 December 2018 to 05 December 2018
Location: 
Berlin, Germany

The 13th European Bioplastics Conference will take place on 4-5 December 2018 in Berlin.

The conference is the leading business and discussion forum for the bioplastics sector in Europe and worldwide. As the major industry association in this field, the hosts at European Bioplastics are committed to representing the interests of stakeholders along the entire value chain. The diversity of the delegation – 330 participants in 2017 and expected to grow – reflects that, and the trend towards a pan-industry gathering is set to continue as the event embraces the inclusion of political and other non-private sector actors.

With more and more brands and manufacturers waking up to the potential of bioplastics, and with policy makers increasingly streamlining their efforts to install frameworks that benefit the growth of sustainable bio-industries, this is the time to put bioplastics high up on the agenda of a bio-based circular economy in Europe and beyond.

This year’s conference will focus on advanced innovations in bioplastics as well as on environmental aspects and opportunities for growth
