Editorial dear readers It was quite a shock last week, to read about ADM ending the Telles joint venture. I cross my fingers and hope that Metabolix soon find a new partner (or partners), and a new business model. Meanwhile, let’s have a look into this latest issue. ‘Automotive’ is in first place, as usual for the beginning of a year. In addition to a new episode in the life of my favourite racing car we present a number of interesting articles about automotive applications and other developments related to the automotive industry. ‘Foam’ was also promised, but we are getting a bit short of news for this issue. Initially planned just for the ‘Basics’ article, PLA has become another real highlight in this issue. Here you will also find our NPE’2012 preview. After 40 years in Chicago this big North American trade show has moved to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Besides a preview, with brief notes about some of the exhibiting companies, we offer a detachable centrefold with a floor plan of the exhibition as a special service to all NPE visitors. If you are coming to the show be sure to drop in to the bioplastics MAGAZINE booth and say hello (booth # 58047). If you prefer Europe as the place to pick up the latest news and information on the innovations in our business, then please take a look at the recently published programme (page 6) for our 2nd PLA World Congress on May 15th and 16th, 2012, in Munich, Germany. I sincerely hope to see you, either here or there … … and until then, we hope you enjoy reading bioplastics MAGAZINE Sincerely yours Michael Thielen Follow us on twitter: twitter.com/bioplasticsmag Be our friend on Facebook: www.facebook.com/bioplasticsmagazine Register now! www.pla-world-congress.com 2 nd PLA World C o n g r e s s 15 + 16 MAY 2012 * Munich * Germany bioplastics MAGAZINE [01/12] Vol. 7 3
