2020/2021 The Bioplastics Award 2020/2021 will be presented during the 16th European Bioplastics Conference end of 2021 (location t.b.d.) Due to the Corona (covid-19) pandemic things are different than we are used to... And this also true for the Global Bioplastics Award. We believe that an award requires a stage, an audience, a trophy and applause. An since the 15 th European Bioplastics Conference, like so many other events, is being held strictly virtual this year, we decided to to present a Bioplastics Award 2020/2021 at the next, hopefully physical, European Bioplastics Conference. You can certainly send in your proposals at any time until the deadline. PRESENTS THE FIFTEENTH ANNUAL GLOBAL AWARD FOR DEVELOPERS, MANUFACTURERS AND USERS OF BIOBASED AND/OR BIODEGRADABLE PLASTICS. Call for proposals Enter your own product, service or development, or nominate your favourite example from another organisation Please let us know until August 31 st 2021 1. What the product, service or development is and does 2. Why you think this product, service or development should win an award 3. What your (or the proposed) company or organisation does Your entry should not exceed 500 words (approx. 1 page) and may also be supported with photographs, samples, marketing brochures and/or technical documentation (cannot be sent back). The 5 nominees must be prepared to provide a 30 second videoclip and come to the European Bioplastics Conference end of 2021.

io PAC organized by bioplastics MAGAZINE Conference on Biobased Packaging 11 - 12 May 2021 - Düsseldorf, Germany bio!PAC 2021 Circular packaging based on renewable carbon plastics There are only 3 sources of renewable carbon plastics: • recycled plastics • biobased plastics from all types of biomass (waste streams) • CO 2 based plastics All three sources are essential for a complete transition to a circular economy. At the bio!PAC conference we focus on packaging based on biobased plastics and CO 2 based plastics. Packaging is necessary for: » food safety » prevention of product losses » protection during transport and storage » increasing shelf life » sharing product information and marketing But… Most packaging is only used for a short period and therefore give rise to large quantities of waste. Accordingly, it is vital to make sure that packaging fits into natures eco-systems and therefore use the most suitable renewable carbon materials and implement the best ‘end-of-life’ solutions. Renewable carbon packaging » can be recyclable and/or compostable » fits into the circular economy of the future » is made from renewable resources or waste streams » can offer environmental benefits in the end-of-life phase » can offer innovative features and beneficial barrier properties » helps to reduce the depletion of finite fossil resources and CO 2 emissions bio!PAC 2021 That‘s why bioplastics MAGAZINE (in cooperation with Green Serendipity) is now organizing the 4 th edition of the bio!PAC - conference on packaging made from renewable carbon plastics, i.e. from renewable resources. Experts from all areas of renewable carbon plastics and circular packaging will present their latest developments. The conference will also cover discussions like end-of-life options, consumer behavior issues, availability of agricultural land for material use versus food and feed etc. The full 2-day conference is planned to be held on 11-12 May 2021 in Düsseldorf, Germany (Maritim Airport Hotel). bioplastics MAGAZINE [05/20] Vol. 15 13
