With its new Biopolymer Platform at their website the IfBB - Institute for Bioplastics and Biocomposites (Hanover, Germany) presents the most important market-related and technical facts on bioplastics in a comprehensive, highly transparent and coherent way. Free access and the desired degree of transparency shall be taken as a baseline for entering into more factual debates, with less emotional punch, on all issues concerning bioplastics. Specifically, the IfBB platform serves to illustrate the basic parameters for the production of bioplastic materials, for example process routes, land use, or resource expenditure. Process routes are delineated in detail from the raw material to the finished product, describing the individual process steps, intermediate products, and input-output streams. As another essential feature, up-to-date market figures are offered, for example, on current production capacities for bioplastics, capacity developments over a five-year period, geographic distribution, fields of application for bioplastics within certain market segments (agricultural sector/ crop farming, catering, bottles, other types of packaging including carrying bags and waste bags, construction, pharmaceuticals/medicine, product/consumer or technical applications including electronics and automotive parts), monetary market volumes for individual materials, applications, regions, etc. For example, the graph on Global biopolymer production capacity (cf. Fig. 1 and 2) shows a fivefold increase in production volumes of biopolymers from around 1,1 million tonnes in 2011 up to nearly 5,8 million tonnes over the fiveyear period until 2016 worldwide. Hereby, the strongest growth will take place in the durables, non-biodegradables bioplastics (Fig. 1). 10 bioplastics MAGAZINE [02/13] Vol. 8

8 Report Sorted by materials the statistic shows that above all the Bio-PET will increase in an extraordinary way: from a proportion of about 42.5% in 2012 up to 80 % of the total biopolymer production capacity worldwide in 2016 (Fig 3). Concerning the development of the global biopolymer production capacity sorted by regions, the graph in Fig. 2 shows an obvious trend: Especially Asia and South America will be interesting locations for the production of bioplastics in the next years. Much more information, data and technical facts, comparisons and tendencies especially on the fields of application for bioplastics within certain market segments, regional market shares or future of the different biopolymer types is offered at the IfBB- Biopolymer Platform, classified into categories such as feedstock and land use requirements, specific biopolymer yields, process route charts, or extensive market figures on production capacities. www.downloads.ifbb-hannover.de Fig. 3: Material share of biopolymer production capacity BuilDing a BioBaSeD future for euroPe 2012 Biodegradable Polyesters 9.5% Regenerated Cellulose 2.2% Starch Blends 11.0% PLA & PLA-Blends 14.6% PHA 1.7% Cellulose Derivatives 0.4% PCL 0.1% Bio-PET 30 42.5% Bio-Pur 0.1% Bio-TPE 0.2% Bio-PC 0.02% Bio-PA 1.8% Total 2012: 1.275 Mt Bio-PUR 0.03% Bio-TPE 0.1% Bio-PC 0.3% BIO-PP 0.5% 2016 Biodegradable Polyesters 2.7% Starch Blends PHA Cellulose Derivatives 2.6% 2.5% 0.1% PLA & PLA-Blends 5.1% Bio-PA 1.2% Bio-PE 4.3% Regenerated Cellulose PCL 0.5% 0.02% Bio-PET 30 80.1% Save the date! 10 / 11 December 2013 InterContinental Berlin More information is available at: conference@european-bioplastics.org Phone: +49 (0)30 28 48 23 50 Total 2016: 5.779 Mt www.conference.european-bioplastics.org bioplastics MAGAZINE [02/13] Vol. 9 11
