Editorial dear readers As you read these lines, the 13 th European Bioplastics Conference in Berlin is over or – for some of you – still going on. And as always, we are grateful to European Bioplastics for giving us the opportunity to present the Annual Global Bioplastics Award at this prestigious event. For those of you who missed it, turn to page 10, where we present this year’s winner. We had already reported about the project earlier this year, and it so happened that the development was anonymously proposed for the award – and won. Films, Flexibles, Bags is traditionally the first highlight topic of every December issue of bioplastics MAGAZINE. And the other this year is Bioplastics made from waste streams. It is also interesting to see that in the aftermath of our 1 st PHA platform World Congress , the response continues. A group of four experts have now come together to found GO!PHA - the Global Organization for PHA - a global initiative to accelerate the development of the PHA-platform industry. 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 3 rd bio!PAC conference on biobased packaging in Düsseldorf 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 international bio!TOY conference. At the end of March, we are going to bring together raw material suppliers and toy manufacturers in Nürnberg, Germany, the Toy City. See pages 11 and 13 for details. 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 Guangzhou and of course the K’show in Düsseldorf in October and a host of other events. We’ll be covering as many of these events as possible - and we hope to see you there, too. Until then, please enjoy reading bioplastics MAGAZINE. bioplastics MAGAZINE Vol. 13 ISSN 1862-5258 Compostable sanitary napkin project wins 13th Global Bioplastics Award | 10 Highlights Bioplastics from waste streams | 20 Films, flexibles, bags | 12 Nov / Dec 06 | 2018 ... is read in 92 countries Follow us on twitter!
