Editorial dear readers Dear Readers It was a try and it was a success. The first bio!PAC conference on biobased packaging in Amsterdam on May 12 and 13 was very well received by the almost 100 attendees, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors. One presentation that most participants were excited about was the one from Laura de Nooijer from Lovechock. Although (or maybe even because) it was not the usual technical stuff. We liked it too, so we made it the cover story of this issue. ISSN 1862-5258 May / June Cover Story Lovechock 03 | 2015 Other highlights are injection moulding, biocomposites and biobased thermoset. All of these topics are kind of paving the way to our next big conference event. Together with the nova-Institute we are organizing the first bio!CAR Conference on Biobased Materials in Automotive Engineering. This conference will be held within the framework of the trade fair COMPOSITES EUROPE at the end of September in Stuttgart, Germany.
