Living up to providing you with the leading business and networking event for the biopolymer industry in Europe, the conference’s 2020 edition is going virtual!

No, we will not tie you to the screen with an all-day zoom call, instead we are delighted to present you with live, interactive, and to-the point panel discussions starring the leading business, policy, and industry experts. Six panels in four days, making sure the sessions of approximately 2 hours length fit into your work schedule. You can ask questions live and engage with the panellists and fellow attendees: this format will not stand short of what you are used to at European Bioplastics.

To top it off, we will present not one but two stages as well as a poster presentation and exhibition hall, giving you the chance to stay on top of the latest trends, innovations and insights relevant to your information needs and field of expertise. Teaming up with vfair to bring to you the latest state-of-the-art conference platform, you can engage and network with the attendees and exhibitors just as visiting a live event. You can virtually explore the exhibition booths, network in one-on-one chats, or – even better – in personal video calls. At the same time, you can follow the presentations and panels on our two virtual conference stages.

Sustainability, resource efficiency, and policy framework: we will dive into a wide range of topics, including the pitfalls and limitations of the sustainability assessment tool of bio-based plastics. In adhering to a well-established tradition, we will present the latest bioplastics market data update and give insights into the potentials and future trends of the industry. Some of the highlights this year include:

· European Composting Landscape – quo vadis? Throughout the EU, the organic recycling of compostable packaging is handled differently. How can the industry learn from the different frameworks and best practices? Industry leaders, NGOs, and biodegradability experts will discuss how to set the path towards a streamlined and coherent policy landscape.

· Challenges & opportunities of the ongoing EU Policy framework for bioplastics: following the latest discussion, the panellists including Silvia Maltagliatti (DG RTD) and sustainability advisory expert Julia Koskella (Systemiq) will elaborate on sustainable sourcing of renewable feedstock and biodegradation of plastics in different environments.

Last but not least, we are delighted to announce that TÜV Austria is the official platinum sponsor of the 15th European Bioplastics Conference. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of its OK compost certification this year, we thank TÜV Austria for supporting the conference.
