nova-Logo_Newsletter_150piBuy the most comprehensive trend report on bio-based polymers – and if you are not satisfied, give it back

François de Bie, Global Marketing Director Bio-plastics at Corbion Purac B.V. (NL), for instance called nova’s study an “excellent piece of work“

Convinced to have compiled the best market and trend bio-based polymers (and also their precursors) there is today, nova-Institute now offers to buy the full report “Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers in the World – Capacities, Production and Applications: Status Quo and Trends Towards 2020” for 3,000 € – and if the report does not meet the customers’ quality expectations, they simply have to explain what they are missing and get their money back (minus 10% to cover administrative expenses).

16-03-30NL_Cascading-use-of-wood-reportNew report on “Cascading Use of Wood Products”

Free download at www.bio-based.eu/policy

Commissioned by WWF and Mondi, the report looks at how regulation either hinders or promotes cascading use of wood. Using wood more efficiently to meet projected demand for wood-based products in Europe should be at the heart of the European Commission’s bioenergy strategy and circular economy. The report is based on research by nova-Institute and the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP).

6-8 April 2016, Real Marina Hotel, Olhão, Portugal

Leading research meets policy – join the conference now!

For two and a half days in April, top researchers and policy makers will meet in Olhão, Portugal, to present recent findings on the utilization of micro-algae for food additives, plastics or fuels. Algae have received a lot of interest from the political arena due to their ability to absorb huge amounts of CO2, being grown on non-arable land – therefore not posing any competition to food – and their ability to produce many interesting compounds usable for materials and for energy. The conference in Olhão will showcase several years of research conducted within seven EU-funded research projects on microalgae.

pla-banner-150bioplastics MAGAZINE is organizing the 4th PLA World Congress

24-25 May 2016 in Munich, Germany

PLA is one of the bioplastics with the largest market significance. The versatile biobased plastic raw material is made almost completely from renewable resources. It is being used for packaging applications, for fibres in woven and non-woven applications. Even the automotive industry and consumer electronics are already applying PLA. Blending PLA with other bioplastics or other blend-partners as well as mixing it with natural fibres such as flax, hemp or kenaf broadens the range of applications even more.

algaeparcMicroalgae Process Design: from cells to photobioreactors (4th edition)

8 – 15 July 2016, Wageningen, The Netherlands

The waters of the world, oceans, seas, rivers, creeks, lakes and even ice, house a tremendous variety of microorganisms able to use light as the only source of energy to fuel metabolism. These unicellular organisms, microalgae and cyanobacteria, have the potential to produce a variety of products. To make economical large-scale production of such bulk products possible, the cost price for production needs to be reduced, the scale of production needs to be increased substantially and the biomass value should be maximized. In this course “Microalgae Process Design: from cells to photobioreactors” the biology and cultivation part are covered.

splashalgaeparcMicroalgae Biorefinery (1st edition)

18 – 20 July 2016, Wageningen, The Netherlands

To make microalgae a source of bulk products, the cost price for production needs to be reduced, the scale of production needs to be increased significantly and the biomass value should be maximized. To develop a more sustainable and economically feasible process, all biomass components (e.g. proteins, lipids, carbohydrates) should be used at minimal energy requirements and minimal costs while keeping the functionality of the different biomass components. Biorefining of microalgae is very important for the selective separation and use of the functional biomass components. In this course, ‘Microalgae Biorefinery’, the downstream part, i.e. the biorefinery will be in focus.
