Editorial dear readers A proposal to amend the European Packaging Directive in terms of (what we call) bagislation caused quite a lot of excitement in early November. A press release by the European Commission was commented on by associations such as European Bioplastics, the European Plastic Converters (EuPC), the German Association of Plastic Packaging (IK) and others. We ourselves also asked the opinion of some stakeholders and created a kaleidoscope of opinions and facts. However, the question of whether the problem of marine littering can be solved with certain legal measures such as bag bans or taxes — or with certain materials — could not be answered satisfactorily. At least this is a huge field for discussion, and I am sure we will hear a lot more about it in the future — and bioplastics MAGAZINE will report on it. This bagislation question is certainly one of the topics belonging to our editorial focus in this issue, where we look at the subject of films, flexibles, bags. The second highlight is Bioplastics in consumer electronics. One of the applications has made it into the shortlist of the Bioplastics Award. From significantly more proposals than last year, the five judges again selected five submissions (see page 10 for details). The winner will be presented on December 10 th at the 8 th European Bioplastics Conference in Berlin. We are looking forward to meeting one or the other of you there. As usual this issue is once again rounded off by lots of industry and applications news… We hope you enjoy reading bioplastics MAGAZINE.
