Numerous studies assessing the bioplastics market come to differing conclusions concerning the industry’s growth rate. However, one result is certain: The industry is growing, expanding fast with new companies emerging and product innovation. The leading business forum – the European Bioplastics Conference – will be setting new standards in presenting the latest industry developments.
The 6th European Bioplastics Conference is the place to be for getting a comprehensive overview over the latest innovations in material and application development – in Europe and beyond! “There is an ever-increasing demand for exchanging information and initiating cooperations. The European Bioplastics Conference has established itself as the leading business forum for the thriving bioplastics industry”, says Andy Sweetman, Chairman of European Bioplastics.
Experts and representatives expected at this year’s conference will again be presented with excellent networking platforms and an exciting product exhibition at the biggest event of its kind. “We aim to set a new attendance record with 400+ participants in 2011”, says Hasso von Pogrell, Managing Director of European Bioplastics. At last year’s conference, European Bioplastics welcomed over 360 participants from more than 170 companies around the world.
Preparations for the conference are shifting into high gear. The “Call for Papers” will be published soon. Registration for the 6th European Bioplastics Conference will be open as of April 2011.
European Bioplastics is the European association representing the interests of the industry along the complete bioplastics' value chain. Its members produce, refine and distribute bioplastics - plastics that are either biobased, compostable, or both.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
