The Dutch government is investing in creating a bio-based economy and hopes to be known as ‘the land of green chemistry’ by 2050. A variety of industry leaders met in the Dutch town of Wageningen earlier this year to discuss innovations in bioplastics.
Bioplastics leaders from across Europe gathered in Wageningen for a symposium organized by the Biobased Performance Materials (BPM) program, where government and industry outlined plans to make the Netherlands one of the largest bio-based economies in the world.
