Events bioplastics

Events bioplastics MAGAZINE presents The first bio!TOY conference on toys made from biobased plastics in Nuremberg, Germany, organised by bioplastics MAGAZINE and narocon is the must-attend conference for everyone interested in toys responsibly made from renewable resources. The conference offers high class presentations from top individuals from raw material providers as well as from toy brand owners already using biobased plastics. The unique event also offers excellent networking opportunities along with a table top exhibition. Please find below the preliminary programme. Find more details and register at the conference website. Why bio!TOY:Conference on toys made from biobased plastics Plastics are THE most widely used materials for toys and many products for leisure. Plastics still rank ahead of wood, cardboard and textiles (including plush), which ultimately also very often consist of synthetic fibres. Plastics for toys should therefore be as healthy and sustainable as possible - because our children play every day. The first responsible manufacturers of plastic toys are therefore switching to plastics made from bio-based materials, which are made from renewable raw materials. The burning questions in this respect are: How to create and accelerate this change? How to secure the goals and claims? That’s why bioplastics MAGAZINE together with narocon (Harald Kaeb) and supported by the German Toy Manfacturer Association DVSI and the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture are now inviting businesses and media to the first bio!TOY conference. More than 20 presentations with focus on suitable materials, application examples and user experiences. In addition experts will give background information on regulations, policy and funding opportunities. The conference will be accompanied by a table-top exhibition of business and technology leaders. The preliminary programme below will constantly be amended and updated on the website.
