Events organized by Co-organized by Jan Ravenstijn New Programme Arrangements www.pha-world-congress.com Disappointingly, the Coronavirus pandemic has forced us to revise our plans for the 2 nd PHA-platform World Congress, wich is now scheduled for 30-31 March 2021. Meanwhile, for this year, we add a virtual component. On 02 September, we host a webinar on the latest developments around PHA, including capacity expansions, investment opportunities, application developments, legislation and an update on GO!PHA’s programmes and progress. Please find the programme of the webinar on Sep 02, 2020 below. We’ve also opened registration for the physical event on 30-31 March 2021, and once again extended the Early Bird Deadline. Save EUR 100.00 if you register before August 31 st . Participation in the webinar is free of charge if full payment of the event registration fee is made before 28 August. For participants planning to take part in the webinar only, the fee is EUR 349.00. Those who subsequently decide to register for the congress as well will be granted a discount on the regular attendance fee. Programme The programme of the webinar below is no longer divided into thematic blocks. This is mainly because the presentations of speakers in different time zones have now instead been scheduled at the most convenient times possible. While some participants in the webinar will want to follow the presentations ‘live’, for example, in order to ask questions, time zone differences may make this inconvenient or infeasible for others. However, recorded versions of the presentations will be available 48 hours after the event to allow participants to tune in and replay. Questions may be submitted to us and will be forwarded to the speakers. The speakers will then respond directly. The programme does not include any coffee or lunch breaks. All time slots are 30 minutes, which includes time for questions and answers, but also time to grab a coffee or to visit the restroom. It also allows us to switch between speakers for a smooth webinar experience. 10:15 - 10:30 Michael Thielen, Polymedia Publisher Welcome and introduction 10:30 - 11:00 Jan Ravenstijn, GO!PHA Will the PHA-platform move up on the S-curve this year? 11:00 - 11:30 Kuk-Ki Hong, CheilJedang CJ BIO's Contribution for PHA market development - Technology and Preliminary Plan 11:30 - 12:00 Rick Passenier, GO!PHA Acceleration of PHA adoption through continuous value chain collaboration - The Global Organization for PHA - GO!PHA 12:00 - 12:30 Lara Dammer, Nova Institute EU Plastics Legislation and its Impact on Bio-based Plastics 12:30 - 13:00 Anindya Mukherjee, GO!PHA Plastics Bans Around the World and PHA's Role in Filling the Void. 13:00 - 13:30 Ronald Krijns, BYK / Altana Virgin PHA, an extraordinary coating additive. 13:30 - 14:00 Lenka Minářová, Nafigate / Hydal European Green Deal and New Opportunity for PHA 14:00 - 14:30 Ramani Narayan, Michigan State Univ.

Register now, and benefit from our Early Bird discount until August 31, 2020 New programme arrangements: Sep 02, 2020: Webinar March 30-31, 2021: Congress in Cologne, Germany organized by and Jan Ravenstijn www.pha-world-congress.com Diamond Sponsor Gold Sponsor Silver Sponsor Supported by Media Partner Platinum Sponsor Bronze Sponsor …from Embryonic to Early Growth PHA (Poly-Hydroxy-Alkanoates or polyhydroxy fatty acids) is a family of biobased polyesters. As in many mammals, including humans, that hold energy reserves in the form of body fat there are also bacteria that hold intracellular reserves of polyhydroxy alkanoates. Here the microorganisms store a particularly high level of energy reserves (up to 80% of their own body weight) for when their sources of nutrition become scarce. Examples for such Polyhydroxyalkanoates are PHB, PHV, PHBV, PHBH and many more. That’s why we speak about the PHA platform. This PHA-platform is made up of a large variety of bioplastics raw materials made from many different renewable resources. Depending on the type of PHA, they can be used for applications in films and rigid packaging, biomedical applications, automotive, consumer electronics, appliances, toys, glues, adhesives, paints, coatings, fibers for woven and non-woven andPHA products inks. So PHAs cover a broad range of properties and applications. That’s why bioplastics MAGAZINE and Jan Ravenstijn are now organizing the 2 nd PHA-platform World Congress on 30-31 March 2021 (new date) in Cologne / Germany. This congress continues the great success of the 1 st PHA platform World Congress and the PHA-day at the Bioplastics Business Breakfast @ K 2019. We will again offer a special “Basics”-Workshop in the day before (March 29) - if there are sufficient registrations... To shorten the time until then, we’ll host a 4-6 hour webinar on 2 Sept. 2020. The congress will address the progress, challenges and market opportunities for the formation of this new polymer platform in the world. Every step in the value chain will be addressed. Raw materials, polymer manufacturing, compounding, polymer processing, applications, opportunities and end-of-life options will be discussed by parties active in each of these areas. Progress in underlying technology challenges will also be addressed. bioplastics MAGAZINE [04/20] Vol. 15 9
