Editorial dear readers Two big events are approaching fast: from April 23 rd to 26 th Chinaplas is attracting visitors to Shanghai, not only from China but also from the rest of Asia, and from all over the world. Again organizer Adsale Exhibition Services has arranged a special Bioplastics Zone in hall 9. The other big trade show is interpack (May 8 th to 14 th ). Every three years the packaging industry meets in Düsseldorf, Germany, for the largest packaging show in the World. bioplastics MAGAZINE has prepared comprehensive previews for both events, including show guides with floor plans. Meet bioplastics MAGAZINE in Shanghai at our own booth (N3S29). At interpack you can meet us at the European Bioplastics booth in hall 9 (booth F05). One of the editorial focal topics in this issue is polyurethane, which is also covered in the Basics section. Another highlight, albeit not announced as an editorial focus in advance is PHA, for example as part of a report to our visit to the Meredian plant in Bainbridge, Georgia, USA. The third important event his spring — at least from our point of view — is 3 rd PLA World Congress. bioplastics MAGAZINE invites you once again to this unique event in Munich, Germany, on May 27 th and 28 th , 2014. The bioplastics MAGAZINE team is looking forward to seeing one or other of you at one of the many events this spring. Until then we hope you enjoy your reading.
