Editorial dear readers Films, Flexibles, Bags is traditionally the first highlight topic of every December issue of bioplastics MAGAZINE. While it is one that, in the past, has always proven to be among the most popular, this year apparently there was surprisingly little news to report. Fortunately, this was more than made up for by the unexpected outpour of contributions we received on the topic Polyurethanes/Elastomers and related building blocks, which will bring our readers up to date on the latest developments in this area. Then, for those of you, who missed it… On page 10 we present this year’s winner of the Global Bioplastics Award. As always, we’ve rounded up some of the most recent news items on materials and applications to keep you abreast of the latest innovations and ongoing advances in the world of bioplastics. Lastly, I’d like to remind you of the 5th PLA World Congress in Munich/Germany next May – the call for papers is still open. If you have an interesting topic to report on, please let us know. The same goes for the first PHA platform World Congress in Cologne/ Germany next September. Let me take this opportunity to wish you all a relaxing time over the holidays as this year comes to an end. Together with you, our readers, we look forward with confidence to a new year of challenges, innovations - and events. On our calendar, we’ve already marked down Chinaplas, taking place next year at a new location in Shanghai, NPE in Orlando, NatureWorks’ ITR in September and a host of other conferences. We’ll be covering these events, and more - and we hope to see you there, too.
