Welcome to Bioplastics News; the world's leading website on bioplastics.

Axel Barrett

My name is Axel Barrett and I started BioplasticsNews.com in 2013.

I used to work in Public and Government Affairs dealing with topics such as packaging, waste management and corporate communications. Eventually, I took the decision to move into the “web”.

I thought the best way to learn about the “web” was to build my own website.

I had to find a topic and “Bioplastics” seemed to be “cool” and felt “sustainable”.

Over the years, I realised that it’s not black or white, it’s a bit grey-ish. So I decided to add chemical recycling and circular plastics to the mix.

My purpose is to build the most efficient and complete information platform on bioplastics, chemical recycling and circular plastics.

I have the mission to inform the readers, tell the truth and keep the church in the middle of the village.

The website audience has been growing over the years reaching more than a million unique visitors.

Here’s a picture of me trying to look cool.
