12th European Bioplastics Conference @ Maritim proArte Hotel
Nov 28 – Nov 29 all-day
12th European Bioplastics Conference @ Maritim proArte Hotel  | Berlin | Berlin | Germany

Following on from the successful events of the past years that reflected the growing confidence in plastics solutions that are biobased, biodegradable, or both as a viable alternative to conventional plastics, the 12th European Bioplastics Conference has now been confirmed to take place on 28/29 November 2017 at the Maritim proArte Hotel in Berlin, Germany.

The European Bioplastics Conference has evolved into the leading business and discussion forum for the bioplastics sector in Europe and worldwide. As the major industry association in this field, the hosts at European Bioplastics are committed to representing the interests of stakeholders along the entire value chain. The diversity of the delegation – 350 strong in 2015 and expected to grow – reflects that, and the trend towards a pan-industry gathering is set to continue as the event embraces the inclusion of political and other non-private sector actors.

With more and more brands and manufacturers waking up to the potential of bioplastics, and with policy makers increasingly streamlining their efforts to install frameworks that benefit the growth of sustainable bio-industries, this is the time to put bioplastics high up on the agenda of a biobased circular economy in Europe and beyond.

The 11th European Bioplastics Conference will deliver on its mission to provide the latest insights and industry updates, connect key stakeholders, drive business and innovation, and position the bioplastics industry as a key pillar of the future circular economy.
