Merseburg/Germany, 10 May 2021. In India, one of the largest markets of the world, the interest in bio-based and biodegradable plastics ist growing rapidly. In his keynote speech, the expert from the All India Plastics Manufacturers Association (AIPMA) explains what this means specifically for suppliers and producers and how research and development are changing in this sector. POLYKUM e.V. Association, which organizes the congress, agreed last year a partnership with AIPMA, which is one of the leading of its kind with more than 22,000 members.
The optimization and compounding of bioplastics are focused in the following morning session. The processing of the mostly sensitive biomaterials will be examined from various points of view in a second session after the lunch break (the program will be finalized during the next few days). A special highlight awaits the participants at the last session, when the winner projects of the BIOPOLYMER Innovation Award will be presented.
All lectures will be translated simultaneously into German or English (depending on the language of the lecture). "As with the previous congresses, we are expecting a high proportion of international participants", Peter Putsch, president of POLYKUM e.V., is convinced. The fact that the congress will take place online this year should also fuel international interest: "We are using the corona pandemic to take this step into the livestream world," Putsch explains. Next year, the congress should be experienced both as a face-to-face event and as a livestream, the head of the non-profit organization from the “Central German Chemical Triangle” looks forward.
From Tuesday, April 27th, participants can register for the online congress on June 15th via the website www.polykum.de/en/biopolymer-2021 Thanks to the support of partners, the tickets will be handed out free of charge once this year. _______________________________
