Renewable Materials Conference (hybrid)

There is a growing market demand for advanced and ready-to-use sustainable material solutions with a low carbon footprint – and fossil-free. In response, nova-Institute has decided to unite all relevant industries in the new Renewable Materials Conference (RMC). Over three days, participants get a complete overview of the latest renewable material solutions from a wide range of sustainable raw materials and technologies. The first day will focus on building blocks and chemicals, the second on polymers and plastics, and the third on plastic and composite materials. The Renewable Materials Conference is the follow-up event to this year’s “13th International Conference on Bio-based Materials”, thus, building on a successful history of previous conferences.

The conference will be held in a hybrid format – the physical meeting, which will take place 18–20 May 2021 in Cologne, Germany, can also be attended virtually.
