Editorial dear readers Again we saw a late summer and autumn with a lot of events. Besides innovations in materials, applications or end-of-life solutions, legal issues such as a ban on plastic shopping bags, waste directives or the TFC green guides, were much-discussed topics at most of these conferences and symposiums.

For Chinaplas we are planning a joint booth - contact us if you are interested in participating. And for K’2013 we are already preparing our B³ - Bioplastics Business Breakfast … Follow us on twitter! www.twitter.com/bioplasticsmag Be our friend on Facebook! www.facebook.com/bioplasticsmagazine Until then, we hope you enjoy reading bioplastics MAGAZINE Sincerely yours Michael Thielen bioplastics MAGAZINE [06/12] Vol. 7 3
