Editorial dear readers Wow, that was a show. About 220,000 plastics experts came to K’2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany between October 27 and November 3. More than 70 exhibitors (out of 3,500) showed products and services around bioplastics. Among them bioplastics MAGAZINE with our booth in hall 7 and our three very well received Bioplastics Business Breakfasts. A review of the bioplastics exhibits on pages 10 - 15 will round off the comprehensive preview in issue 05/2010. Highlights in this issue are articles and news items around bioplastics in film/flexibles/bags – applications and bioplastics in consumer electronics. The latter once again shows, that bioplastics are going their way in durable applications. And then there is the topic of ‘recycling’. Initially planned to be just one ‘Basics’ article, we now have this article on the basics of recycling and in addition a few more specialized articles on recycling and feedstock recovery, including the cover story. The articles in the ‘Opinion’ section are meant to be’ food for thought’ and for further discussions. Please feel free to send us your point of view. We are always happy to publish ‘letters to the editor’ or articles with different ‘Opinions’. While this issue is being printed we will have the ceremony of giving the 5th Bioplastics Award to the winner during the 5th European Bioplastics Conference. We’d like to congratulate Econcore NV from Belgium, who received the award for the development of their PLA honeycomb sandwich structure. See details on page 9 and in our last issue. We hope you enjoy the holiday season and of course reading this issue of bioplastics MAGAZINE. bioplastics MAGAZINE Vol. 5 ISSN 1862-5258 Highlights Films - Flexibles - Bags | 20 Consumer Electronics | 28 November/December Ine A Fedsto Rec Rec 14 Review 06 | 2010 ... is read in 91 countries Personality Frederic Scheer | 56 Basics Recycling | 48 Yours Michael Thielen New: Follow us on twitter: Be our friend on Facebook: bioplastics MAGAZINE [06/10] Vol. 5
