The 5th BPM symposium will focus on biobased materials R&D in times of Paris climate goals and volatile oil prices. R&D strategies will be presented via an attractive array of interactive presentations by key industry players and research organisations.
In the BPM research programme, companies and knowledge institutes from across the value chain are working together on new biopolymers and on applied research aimed at improving the properties of existing bioplastics. This will put these biobased materials in a better position to compete with existing plastics based on fossil resources, in terms of both material properties and price. BPM is sponsored by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.
