Events Preview 1st PLA World Congress bioplastics MAGAZINE invites to the 1st PLA World Congress. This unique event will be hosted in Munich, Germany on the 9th and 10th of September, 2008. The 1st PLA Bottle Conference, that bioplastics MAGA- ZINE organized in Hamburg last year was quite a success. The conference attracted over 100 experts from more than 25 countries. Delegates from the beverage industry as well as bioplastics experts came from all over Europe, North America and countries as far away as Hawaii, Australia, South Africa and even Bhutan in the Himalayas. The 1st PLA World Congress will cover all topics around the versatile bioplastic material PLA. For details see the ad on the right and the preliminary programme below. Who should attend The 1st PLA World Congress is a unique opportunity to benefit from presentations about the latest developments as well as challenges and future prospects. Raw material suppliers, compounders, converters, retailers, brand owners, trader, engineers, scientists, and journalists get the chance to meet and establish valuable network connections. And of course anyone else who is interested in the opportunities coming from this unique polymer family.

ioplastics MAGAZINE invites to 1st PLA World Congress 09 - 10 September 2008 powered by 1st PLA World Congress PLA is a very promising raw material. The high interest in PLA for bottle applications was demonstrated by the huge participation in the 1st PLA Bottle Conference that bioplastics MAGAZINE organized last September in Hamburg, Germany. But not only PLA bottles are a highly topical subject. PLA is a versatile bioplastics raw material from renewable resources. It is being used for films and rigid packaging, for fi bres in woven and nonwoven applications. Automotive industry and consumer electronics are thoroughly investigating and even already applying PLA. Reinforcement with natural fi bres such as kenaf broadens the range of applications even more. That‘s why bioplastics MAGAZINE is now organising the 1st PLA World Congress. Experts from all involved fields will share their knowledge and contribute to a comprehensive overview of today‘s opportunities and challenges and discuss the possibilities, limitations and future prospects of PLA for all kind of applications. The conference is being held on the 09th and 10th of Semptenber 2008 in Munich, Germany and will cover subjects such as: • Latest developments • Market overview • High temperature behaviour • Barrier issues • Additives / Colorants • Glues / printing inks • Labels • Applications (packaging, bottles, automotive, electronics etc) • Fabrics • Reinforcements • End of life options (recycling, composting, incineration etc) Bioplastics MAGAZINE is looking forward to seeing you in Munich.
