Bioplastic Tour: 2023 Innovations & Trends

On-Demand Course

Recorded on Sep 27, 2023

Identify new opportunities with bioplastics to focus your R&D on right projects with a structured review of game-changing innovations (bio-based materials & future trends...)

Don will share industry's major innovations from past 12 months, to name a few:
  • Development of thermoformable PolyPropylene (PP) grade based on renewable materials which has an equivalent level of performance to conventional Propylene (PP)
  • Recent commercialization of additive masterbatches for modifying biodegradable polyesters which produces an equivalent impact as pure VA-based resins but are easier to handle.
  • Newly introduced single-use, noodle cup which is aesthetically pleasing, bio-based and compostable.

Gave insight on the bioplastics industry at an international level as well as current developments.

Vinitha N. , from Sustainable BioPlastics Council of Maine

Really complete training, it gave an excellent summary of bioplastics available + trends. Keep this high level for the future.

Estelle C. , from Hyplast NV

Excellent overview of the latest developments with the right depth. The fact that the topic was approached from three perspectives (product, market, technology) was very useful.

Gordon A. , from 3M

Excellent course! I'm in the injection molding business and we're always looking out for updates on Bioplastics.

Marina V. , from Nypro

Although I knew about most of the happenings I was quite pleased to see these happenings/prodcuts from various players nicely categorised under various subheading. This was extremely useful for one to decide on the next steps based on one's own competencies

Harjinger B. , from Evonik Industries AG

Course with excellent technical level - provides very new and recent informations!
