The accompanying exhibition attracted the audience like a magnet.

The lectures were held in German and English. The simultaneous translation service helped to understand every sentence in an easy way.

The evening event two days before midsummer invited to interdisciplinary talks. A brazilian Rodizio and tasty salads guaranteed the well-being after the long and inspiring first day of the „BIOPOLYMER – Processing & Moulding.

One of the highlights oft the congress was the presentation of Prof. Aart van Bezooijen an his team of Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle (Saale). The chair holder of Materials & Technology Transfer and his students showed a range of „kitchen-made“ biopolymers, for instance vinyl replacements, which were already used for phonograph records production.

An exclusive present to the participants of the BIOPOLYMER – Processing & Moulding premier event: The Ringmoccacup of Marguerite Friedlaender, newly interpreted with a bioplastic material, produced as a limited edition of only 1,000 pieces.

Halle (Saale)

TGZ-Campus, Weinberg Halle (Saale)

is the heart of the central German “chemicals triangle”. The town was essentially characterized by the regional development of chemical and plastics industries during the last century. The large enterprise facilities of Buna and Leuna, but also of Bitterfeld and Zeitz nearby today are successful Chemical Parks. Big global players like Dow Chemical, Total or Bayer are based here, but also medium sized and small businesses. Companies of the chemical and plastics processing industries, but also innovative service and logistic providers mark the economical townscape of Halle itself today. Many start-ups have their origin at the science and business parc Weinberg Campus. It is located in the green heart of the town, where institutes of the Fraunhofer’s and the Max Planck's, the Leibniz’ and the Helmholtz’ Societies are just as at home as institutions of the 300 years old Martin-Luther-University. Halle is known as one of the most important site of Martin Luthers’ life’s work as well as the birth place of George Frederic Handel. The historical city of Halle was the only one among Germanys major cities that remained nearly undestroyed during World War II. This makes it easy to experience the millenary history of Halle which is closely connected with the legendary Halloren salt miner brotherhood.
