Due to the latest developments of the Corona pandemic, the 4th bio!PAC will now be held strictly virtual. The conference feed was now reduced.
Packaging based on bio-based, biodegradable and compostable plastics.
Packaging is necessary for:
» food safety
» prevention of product losses
» protection during transport and storage
» increasing shelf life
» sharing product information and marketing
But…Most plastics are made from fossil fuels, which contribute to increased greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and microplastics.
Alternative plastics, such as biobased and biodegradable plastics can be a more sustainable alternative to fossil-based plastics. They present new opportunities but there might also be risks that must be carefully assessed.
At the bio!PAC the focus will be on packaging based on bio-based feedstock that leads to genuine environmental benefits in the future. Specific and considerable attention will also be paid to the criteria for these applications.
» can be recyclable, biodegradable and/or compostable
» can be made from renewable resources or waste streams
» can offer innovative features and beneficial barrier properties
» can offer multiple environmental benefits in the end-of-life phase
» helps to reduce the depletion of finite fossil resources and CO2 emissions
That‘s why bioplastics MAGAZINE (in cooperation with Green Serendipity) is now organizing the 4th edition of the bio!PAC - international conference on bioplastics & packaging.
Experts from all areas of bioplastics & packaging will present their latest developments or research. The conference will also cover discussions like end-of-life options, consumer behavior issues, availability of agricultural land for material use versus food and feed etc.
The online event will be recorded and made available for convenient watching (video-on-demand) for at least a month after the event. All presentations will be made available (pdf) as well.
Networking will be possible with the WHOVA App and platform (details below). If the development pandemic allows, we will organize a personal "on-site" meeting on short notice.
Agenda is subject to changes. Please visit this site regularly.
