Past (location no longer active)
Over one hundred international participants attended the second edition of the bio!TOY conference, organised by bioplastics MAGAZINE and innovation consultancy Dr Käb, in Nuremberg (Germany) on the 7th and 8th of September. This meeting of toy manufacturers with plastics companies demonstrated the industries' high interest in sustainable production and circular economy. Both the presentations and resulting discussions point to a growing dynamic in the competition for biobased and high-quality recycled plastics.
The feedback of the participants was unanimously positive and the joy about real face-to-face exchange was palpable. The next bio!TOY conference, in March 2023, will without a doubt deliver news and updates on the progress that is about to be made.
