Editorial dear readers As promised (or rather as expected) we have hit a new record. This issue of bioplastics MAGAZINE is once again the biggest ever. One reason, certainly, is the upcoming K’2010, the world‘s biggest trade fair for plastics and rubber, that takes place in Düsseldorf, Germany from 27th October to 3rd November. In a comprehensive show preview we try to give you as much information as possible on the different bioplastics-related exhibits, including a centrefold with floor plan of the exhibition. This will be complemented by our show review in the next issue. From now on, we also offer a special K’2010 service on our website, especially for visitors interested in bioplastics. And please be sure to visit our booth in Düsseldorf in Hall 7 (C09). Another reason for this ‘bumper’ issue is the number of articles and news items related to our two focus topics, namely: ‘Polyurethanes | Elastomers’ and ‘Fibres | Textiles’, which also covers the nonwoven sector as well as filament for brushes. You can see just how wide the areas of potential application for bioplastics really are - and they are growing week by week! In addition to our ‘basics’ article on the ‘Basics of Bio-Polyolefins’ we again have opinions, news and much more to offer. We are particularly happy to be able to present in this issue the top five companies/products that have been shortlisted from more than 20 entries for the Bioplastics Award 2010. The Bioplastics Award 2010 is presented jointly by bioplastics MAGAZINE and European Plastics News. Oh! And let me remind you of one special highlight at K‘2010 for all those interested in bioplastics: On October 28th, 29th, and 30th we will be hosting ‘Bioplastics Business Breakfasts’. Find out in this issue about this unique opportunity for gathering the latest information and for networking.
