Don’t worry, the raw

Don’t worry, the raw material for Ecovio ® is renewable. Ecovio ® , a biodegradable plastic from the PlasticsPlus TM product line, is keeping up with the times when it comes to plastic bags and food packaging. Ecovio ® is made of corn starch, a renewable raw material, and it has properties like HD-PE, which translates into a double plus point for you. Films made of Ecovio ® are water-resistant, very strong and degrade completely in composting facilities within just a few weeks. www.ecovio.com I N N O VAT I O N R E L I A B I L I T Y PA R T N E R S H I P D I V E R S I T Y

Editorial dear readers Probably the most exciting event in the world of plastics processing and applications is the K-exhibition, which takes place every three years. This year, at the end of October, about 242,000 visitors from more than 100 countries came to the exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany. 3,130 exhibitors presented their products, services and innovations, and bioplastics were a part – albeit a small part – of that mega event. More than 3,000 copies of bioplastics MAGAZINE were picked up from our booth in hall 7 by interested visitors. We were pleased to meet so many of you personally, and talk about so many different topics. We were really quite reluctant to leave the booth from time to time, but we too wanted to see the more than 40 companies exhibiting products such as resins, additives, machines and services related to bioplastics. But it was not only K‘2007 that caught our attention this fall. There was the 2nd European Bioplastics Conference in Paris and the Bioplastics Event in Cologne where the 2nd Bioplastics Awards were made to the innovative and well-deserving winners. And there were in fact many other bioplastics / biopackaging / bioresin events that our editorial team simply could not attend, but I am sure that these too made a significant contribution to disseminating information and promoting networking between the delegates. As well as many other topics from the bioplastics world, the markets, science, politics and so on, the special editorial focus in this issue of bioplastics MAGAZINE is ‘bags‘. I hope you enjoy reading this last issue of 2007. From 2008 we will publish six issues per year and we look forward to your comments, editorial contributions and more exciting events where we can meet with you.
