The futureof plastics

requires a consistent thinking in material cycles. How can plastic products finish their lifetime no longer as waste, but as valuable components of natural or technical cycles? Quite a lot of such materials and technologies do already exist, a lot of them are in progress, and some are just a vision.

The online-event on 13 June 2023 makes the latest developments visible for innovative processors and applicators and enables the direct exchange with scientists and researchers.


    BIOPOLYMER – Processing & Moulding

    With up to 700 registered participants from 45 countries the congress, organized by the non-profit association  POLYKUM in Merseburg (Germany), evolved into one of the largest events of its kind worldwide. In 2023 this successful format is to be further developed with lectures live on stage in Halle (Saale), the heart of the "Central German Chemical Triangle". Our partnership country of the year is Vietnam, one of the most fascinating growth markets in the field of bioplastics.

    Since its premiere in 2018, the BIOPOLYMER Processing and Moulding congress brings processors and applicators, manufacturers, suppliers and researchers of biobased, biodegredable plastics together. Due to the corona pandemic the convention in 2021 was organized as a purely digital event. India was presented as partner country. In the following year the focus of the event was on Central and South America. In 2023 our participants can enjoy the same comfort as known from this online premiere. All lectures can be followed online by common PC or tablet browsers. The lessons will be held in English. The online-tickets can be booked online probably from the end of April 2023 on this webpage free of charge.


    BIOPOLYMER Innovation Award

    Who will get the coveted trophies for outstanding innovations in the field of biodegredable plastics in 2O23? The secret will be revealed during the awards ceremony in the final session of the congress. The winners will present their prize-decorated projects in special lessons of the BIOPOLYMER – Processing & Moulding congress and and be available for questions after their talks. Applications for the BIOPOLYMER Innovation Awards 2O23 can be admitted until 23 April.

    The handmade trophies will be awarded for the fourth time since 2019 by the non-profit Association POLYKUM (Merseburg, Germany). Previous winners came from Italy, Finland, Belgium, Brazil and Germany. Their projects, awarded by the interdisciplinary jury, show pioneering ways for packaging, gardening, construction, medicine and engineering, based on biodegredable plastics. The call for entries and the application form can be downloaded on the website www.polykum.de/en/biopolymer-award
