EUBP Conference platform with main hall, auditorium, exhibition, poster hall, networking lounge, and much more.

Berlin, 19 November 2020The 15th European Bioplastics (EUBP) Conference, the leading business and networking event for the biopolymer industry in Europe, will be held online from 30 November to 3 December 2020. As in previous years, also in times of Covid-19 we will host the branch’s most important dialogue platform. Besides an exciting programme, which is now final, we have created a virtual conference environment that distinguishes us from most web events you have seen so far”, says Hasso von Pogrell, EUBP’s Managing Director.

EUBP is delighted to present you with live, interactive, and to-the-point panel discussions, starring the leading policy, business, and industry experts. The final conference programme is now available. Six panels in four days, making sure the sessions of two hours length fit into your work schedule. Ask your questions live and engage with the panellists and fellow delegates: this format will not stand short of what you are used to from past EUBP conferences.

Bioplastics remain high on the political agenda. Since last year’s conference, additional policy initiatives have been initiated, and several EU studies on bioplastics were published. EUBP was successful in engaging the following panellists to debate the challenges and opportunities of the ongoing EU policy framework for bioplastics:

  • Julia Koskella, Associate, SYSTEMIQ
  • Silvia Maltagliati, Policy Officer, DG RTD
  • Maria Spyraki, MEP, European Parliament
  • Michael Wolf, Policy Officer, DG AGRI

Attendees of the 15th EUBP conference will also be able to participate in panel discussions on the European composting landscape and the future of recycling of bioplastics as well as on the topics of sustainability and Life Cycle Assessment. A further panel will discuss how EU projects can shape the future of bio-based plastics.

The Covid-19 pandemic has confronted the entire global economy with great challenges. Thus, EUBP is looking forward to the new Bioplastics Market Data 2020. How did the bioplastics industry perform this year and what further developments can be expected? The following panellists will identify challenges and opportunities:

  • Jarno Dakhorst, Consultant Energy & Biobased Economy, NEN
  • Doris de Guzman, Senior Consultant, Tecnon OrbiChem
  • Hasso von Pogrell, Managing Director, European Bioplastics
  • Stephan Roest, Strategic Platform Leader Circular Economy Solutions, Borealis
  • Yorimasa Suwa, Advisor, Japan BioPlastics Association

EUBP is pleased to have the support of a wide range of sponsors and media partners that help to continue the success story of its annual conference. Notably, EUBP was able to attract TÜV Austria as platinum sponsor with whom it will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the OK Compost certification.
