Pilar Villanueva AIMPLAS (ES) „New biopolymers for the railway sector and orange juice packaging, and also the latest innovations regarding PBS synthesis by using monomers extracted from orange juice waste.“
Eelco Blum
Avantium (NL)
„Avantium will present project Mekong: a one-step hydrogenolysis process for making a drop-in renewable mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) from glucose. The process is competitive with fossil-based MEG and will address the need for making a greener PET an economic reality.“
Marco Jansen Braskem (BR) „Circular thinking is all about turning waste into resource, avoiding spillage of waste into the environment and finding more sustainable sources of raw materials. Drop in recyclable bioplastics have an important role to play in this. Braskem will show the contributions biobased plastics can make to the circular economy.“
Jan Ravenstijn Jan Ravenstijn Consulting (NL) „Today there is a lot of confusion in the market about PHA. It is no product or polymer, it is a new polymer-platform consisting of many polymers with entirely different structures, which together can cover a large range of applications. After 25 years it’s about time that people become more specific when they talk about “PHA”.“
