PLA is one of the bioplastics with the largest market significance. The versatile bioplastics raw material is made almost completely from renewable resources. It is being used for packaging applications, for fibres in woven and non-woven applications. Even the automotive industry and consumer electronics are already applying PLA. Blending PLA with other bioplastics or other blend-partners as well as mixing it with natural fibres such as flax, hemp or kenaf broadens the range of applications even more.

That‘s why bioplastics MAGAZINE is now organizing the 8th PLA World Congress.

Experts from all involved fields will share their knowledge and contribute to a comprehensive overview of today‘s opportunities and challenges and discuss the possibilities, limitations and future prospects of PLA for all kind of applications.

The 2 full-day-conference will be held on the 28th and 29th of May 2024 in Munich, Germany (or online = hybrid event).

All presentations will be recorded for a convenient "video-on-demand" streaming for at least a month after the event.

Networking among ALL attendees and speakers will be facilitated with the WHOVA app and platform (see below)
