Editorial dear readers “Believe it or not, summer is upon us“, wrote the BBC in their online news a week or so ago. And indeed, after the biggest bioplastics MAGAZINE ever the new summer issue is significantly thinner. But nevertheless we have tried to fill it with interesting news items and applications, as well as a number of articles covering our two editorial focus topics. In the basics section we cover the ‘Compounding of Bioplastics‘ and consequently one of our editorial highlights is a series of articles on additives and masterbatches. Even if some bioplastic bottles have already disappeared from the marketplace for several reasons in our ‘bottles‘ section we are happy to report about three positive examples. All show that, if it‘s done right, double figure growth rates can be achieved. And looking into the future, the next issue is likely to be, once again, the thickest issue ever. The reason is K‘2010, the world‘s biggest trade fair for plastics and rubber. As bioplastics will play an important role at this show our editorial team will prepare a comprehensive preview, including a show guide with floor plan and further details. All exhibitors are invited to supply a short written summary of their exhibits, which will help us to generate a complete show preview. One of the highlights at K‘2010 for all interested in bioplastics will be our “Bioplastics Business Breakfasts“. On October 28th, 29th, and 30th we will be hosting some mini-symposiums, succinct and to the point, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon on the fairgrounds. See page 9 for details. I hope you enjoy reading this issue of bioplastics MAGAZINE. Yours Michael Thielen New: Follow us on twitter: Like us on Facebook: bioplastics MAGAZINE [04/10] Vol. 5
