Plant Based Summit

The Biobased packaging challenges

Sep 23rd | 10:40 am - 12:00 pm


Awareness of eco-designed alternatives has prompted packaging players to change their strategies to minimize the use of materials derived from fossil resources. What are the latest developments in biobased polymers specific to packaging? What are the constraints to development? - Expanded polylactic acid (E-PLA) bead foam with enhanced processing and material performance for 3 dimensional moulded applications (JSP) - Biopolymer Production Process – Novamont's integrated biorefinery (NOVAMONT) - The Potential for hemp as a non-wood source for cellulose and biopolymers (RESTALK)
