Symposium 2018: Biobased Performance Materials #BPM2018

Join the Biobased Performance Materials community at the 7th BPM symposium, this year on Wageningen Campus, the Netherlands, on June 14th, 2018.

SYMPOSIUM 2018- BIOBASED PERFORMANCE MATERIALSThis edition focuses on the topic ‘Biobased performance materials in the circular economy’. Biobased performance materials – renewable materials – are an important part of this new economy. At our annual symposium, amongst others we will look closely at the latest trends and developments such as high performance polymers based on isoidide and an extrusion foaming process for PLA. Key industry players from the entire value chain, ranging from raw materials producer Avebe to building block and polymer producers Reverdia, Croda and DSM, and processing companies Icopal and Synbra, will reflect on their R&D strategies.
