Editorial dear readers Wow! That was a busy spring, with a lot of travelling. The biggest events we attended were, without doubt, the interpack in Düsseldorf, Germany and Chinaplas in Guangzhou. At interpack 2011, the world’s biggest trade show for packaging, the group exhibition ‘bioplastics in packaging’ was again crowded from the first to the last moment. Please see our report on p 18ff. We carried a total of 4,000 copies of bioplastics MAGAZINE to interpack, and after only five days all were gone. Another roughly 1,000 copies were shipped to Chinaplas. Here, at a special ‘bioplastics pavilion’ more than 20 companies including bioplastics MAGAZINE showcased their products and services. On p. 28ff you can find our short report. Another highlight in this issue is our ‘top talk’ interview with Rainer Barthel, Head of R&D Packaging Central Europe at Danone, about their launch of Activia in PLA cups and other questions as to the sustainability approach of the brand owner. In the basics section we publish an extract of the new book ‘Engineering Biopolymers’ by H.-J. Endres and A. Siebert-Raths. It is the chapter on PHA. And last but not least we would like to say a cordial ‘thank you’ to all who expressed their congratulations for our fifth birthday anniversary. Be it during our party at interpack or in letters and e-mails. Hoping that all our readers and advertisers remain loyal to us, we promise to do our best to keep bioplastics MAGAZINE the information platform of choice for you. Again, we hope you enjoy reading bioplastics MAGAZINE Sincerely yours Michael Thielen and Samuel Brangenberg Follow us on twitter: http://twitter.com/bioplasticsmag Be our friend on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/bioplastics-MAGAZINE/103745406344904 bioplastics MAGAZINE [03/11] Vol. 6 3
