dear Editorial readers bioplastics MAGAZINE consistently pursues the path of expanding the range of topics towards Renewable Carbon Plastics. This starts on page 9 with the report about the Renewable Carbon Conference and continues via a cartoon in the centre of this issue. This centrefold is detachable so it can be used as a poster, or to show friends and colleagues. And it closes with a Basics article explaining what is behind the idea of Carbon Capture and Utilisation – CCU. Other news and articles deal with plastics from biomass sources – our traditional topic – and plastics made from captured carbon from CO 2 or methane as well as plastics from advanced recycling. The other highlight topics in this issue are Blow moulding / Bottles and Joining. The Cover Story is also from the field of bottle applications and we are happy to announce, that our Covergirl Jojanneke Leistra, whom we introduce on pp 21, will also give a presentation at our bio!PAC conference on 3 and 4 November in Düsseldorf, Germany. But before that event, we are optimistic to hold the second bio!TOY conference on sustainable toys in Nuremberg, Germany on 7 and 8 September. Later that month, we hope to welcome you in Cologne, Germany for the second PHA platform World Congress. As probably not everyone will be able to travel, we will hold the conferences in a hybrid style. So, you can, if needed, participate online. However, we sincerely hope to meet with many of you in person, as networking and socialising with a good German beer in the evening is high on the list of things we all miss so desperately.
