BBI Workshop on Bio-Based Polymers 2021

Bio-based polymers workshop: These 7 innovations bring us closer to a carbon-neutral economy

280 participants registered. Recording and presentation slides below.

Atmospheric CO2 will keep on climbing higher and higher if we don’t stop using fossil resources. How to make the switch to renewable carbon instead? The bio-based polymers workshop on 29 March will present 7 options.

A lot is already possible, as shown by the speakers: From the valorisation of wastewater over biodegradable, biocompatible wound dressings and automotive prototypes derived from organic waste to FDCA based on agricultural co-products and bio-smart packaging. Moreover, a nova-Institute expert provided differentiated insights into the relevant regulatory landscape (including the single-use plastics directive – SUPD) and answered questions from the audience. If you have further questions in relation to the regulatory landscape, feel free to contact the nova-Institute economy & policy team:
