Editorial dear readers The first issue of bioplastics MAGAZINE was a big success. We printed 4,000 copies, and mailed about 2,500 to qualified readers in 71 countries around the world. The rest was distributed on different conferences and exhibitions, such as the NPE in Chicago. Many of you gave us a very positive feedback and also valuable hints how to improve bioplastics MAGAZINE. Please continue to so and let us know, what you would like to read in the coming issues of this publication. Informative editorial contributions are always welcome. Photo: Danielle Hoogenboom In this issue you’ll find a review of bioplastics activities at the NPE exhibition in Chicago. Further major subjects are shopping bags and bottles. In Germany for example the first PLA bottle for slightly carbonated beverages with a completely compostable cap was introduced on 1 September. A number of qualified contributions give us quite a good opportunity to “look out of the own box” and learn about the legislative and market situation in different countries like Belgium, Canada, USA or India. Please visit our website at for up to date information on events, career opportunities etc. We hope you enjoy reading the second issue of bioplastics MAGAZINE and find valuable information for your business.
