daily upated news at News Senbis expands pilot facilities for sustainable plastics Over the next three years, Senbis in Emmen, the Netherlands, will be investing EUR 5.5 million through its new subsidiary SPIC Facilities BV, in a testing facility for the development of sustainable plastics. “We will be acquiring an impressive range of machinery that will make successive polymer production processes available at different scales: from grams and kilograms to full truck loads,” says Gerard Nijhoving, Managing Director of Senbis. This represents a considerable expansion of the facilities of SPIC Emmen, an innovation cluster in the Netherlands that offers equipment, facilities and services openly to the plastics industry to facilitate the acceleration and upscaling of developments relating to sustainable plastics.. “You may find such facilities spread out over different locations, but not combined at a single location. Our research is pragmatic, flexible, fast and with an industrial focus. Not only the industrial oriented equipment, but also the industrial knowledge is very important in this respect." SPIC Facilities received funding from VoordeGroei BV, MKB Fonds Drenthe, and the Senbis shareholders, as well as government grants by the Dutch SNN (via European Regional Development Fund), the Province of Drenthe and the City of Emmen.MT European bioplastics research network gets underway The project BIO-PLASTICS EUROPE initiated a network of science, companies and politics for the research and development of biobased and biodegradeable plastics. The online conference "Past and Current H2020 Projects Joined in Bioplastics Research" on 24 June 2020 was the kick-off for the European Bioplastics Research Network to present first results and to improve networking. Almost 100 international researchers, company representatives and political decisionmakers from Europe came together to discuss how research and the introduction of biobased and biodegradable plastics can be advanced. The pollution of oceans and landscapes by plastic waste is increasing dramatically worldwide. The avoidance of conventional plastics is therefore becoming more and more urgent. Scientists and companies from all over the world have now joined forces in the European Bioplastics Research Network to find alternative solutions with the support of politicians. The online conference "Past and Current H2020 Projects Joined in Bioplastics Research" was the kick-off to present first results and to improve networking. Almost 100 international researchers, company representatives and political decision-makers from Europe came together virtually at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences on the initiative of the EU-funded research project BIO- PLASTICS EUROPE to discuss how research and the introduction of biobased and biodegradable plastics can be advanced. "Bioplastics will contribute to reducing carbon consumption," emphasised Christian Schulz, EU project manager at the European Bioplastics e. V., and demanded: "To achieve this, we need better coordination of research funding and legislation, and a more consistent exchange between projects that have already been completed and those that are currently underway.” The next international event will take place online on the 4 th of November 2020 with the topic: “2 nd & 3 rd Generation Feedstock for Biobased and Biodegradable Plastics”.
