Why should you view this course?

The production capacity for bioplastics will increase to a predicted 17 million metric tons by 2020. High oil prices, major companies aiming to develop sustainable products, better design... are driving innovations in bioplastics at a faster pace, making it time-consuming & difficult for you to detect real opportunities. Join the live course and:


  1. Save time with a synthetic & neutral overview of latest innovations for more sustainable and higher performance bioplastics (PLA, PHA, algae-based, bio-PET...)

  2. Speed up your future R&D decisions with a clearer view of future trends (material requirements, technology adoption and unmet needs)

  3. See how others in bioplastic field are acting on the latest challenges: alternative feedstock, fillers & additives, 3D printable bioplastics, biocomposites, durable automotive parts...

Who should view this course?

R&D professionals, sales & marketing people, executive managers and all those needing to keep up on bioplastic innovations - from raw material producers to designers.

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!
