PR Log - Mar 18, 2012 - BioPlastics: The Re-Invention of Plastics
San Francisco, June 13-15,  2012



Join us at this DIFFERENTIATED & FOCUSED conference on “BIOPLASTICS" and get updated on how traditional polymers as well as newer materials are being developed from renewable food / non-food biomass; a radical shift from petroleum based industry.

The 2010’s appear to be lighting up the spirit of innovation in the field of chemicals/polymers in a manner similar to the one during 1930’s to 1960’s that led to the mighty Plastics Industry. This time the industry is in pursuit of  manufacturing the traditional polymers as well as opening the path for newer materials but from renewable food / non-food biomass, thereby reducing dependence on crude oil. These developments, once considered academic only, are entering the commercial phase and represent truly remarkable innovations in the Chemicals Industry. Join us on this journey through the world of “BioPlastics: The Re-Invention of Plastics”; an adventure we have not seen in the chemical industry since the 1960’s.
