Events bioplastics

Events bioplastics MAGAZINE presents: For many reasons plastic carrier bags have become a symbol for unsustainable production, consumption, littering and pollution. As a consequence plastics bags have been targeted by NGOs, media, politicians and regulators. A number of states around the world fully or partially banned plastics bags. Several EU Member States implemented Bagislation restricting use, mandating pricing or use of specific materials and types only. For the involved businesses plastic carrier and packaging bags represent enormous markets, e.g. exceeding 1 million tonnes and 2 bn € value alone in Europe. It is the biggest single market for bioplastics. That’s why bioplastics MAGAZINE is now organizing the first Green Bag Conference – Markets and Policy Solutions on 8 – 9 March 2016, in Cologne (Germany). • Which bags do we really need? • How will Bagislation be impacting markets? • What are Green Bag Concepts? These are the main questions to be addressed and answered by experts and key players contributing to this unique conference. With pressure amounting on traditional plastic bags, market opportunities emerge for plastic bags which are biobased and recyclable, or biodegradable-compostable, or made from recyclates. For functional or permanent use. Prominent speakers responsible for legislation and interest representation, market leaders and leading scientists will provide first-hand and fact-based information. The proceedings of the Conference will be shared with the Governments of all 28 EU Member States, and with those from abroad upon request.
