3rd PHA World Congress 2023

The successful PHA World Congress, organised by bioplastics MAGAZINE together with GO!PHA goes into its third edition.  

On October 10 and 11, 2023 the 3rd PHA World Congress will be held at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta. 

The congress will address the progress, challenges, and market opportunities for the formation of this new polymer platform in the world. Every step in the value chain will be addressed. Raw materials, polymer manufacturing, compounding, polymer processing, applications, opportunities, and end-of-life options will be discussed by parties active in each of these areas. Progress in underlying technological challenges will also be addressed.
