Bioplastics Business Breakfast K'2019


Düsseldorf, Germany
Messe Düsseldorf


Thu, 17.10.2019 - Sun, 20.10.2019


K'2019, the World's biggest trade show on plastics and rubber is over.

And certainly bioplastics again played an important role at this mega-event.
That is why we organised for the fourth time the Bioplastics Business Breakfasts (B³) on October 17, 18, 19, 20,  2019 in the Congress Center on the fairgrounds of Messe Düsseldorf (CCD Ost). 

The four individiual "mini"-conferences were be held on each of the three days from 8:00 am to 12:30 am.

17.10.: Bioplastics in Packaging
18.10.: PLA, an innovative Bioplastic
19.10.: Bioplastics in Durable Applications
20.10.: PHA, opportunities and challenges
