For deeper discussion and more detailed information on bio-based building-blocks and polymers, we would like to invite you to join the upcoming nova Session
“Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers – Markets, Trends and Innovations”
24 May 2017, 10:00 – 16:30 h
Terminal 1, Airport Cologne/Bonn, Germany
Learn, share and discuss with the world leading bio-based polymer experts Prof. Dr. Jan Ravenstijn (Jan Ravenstijn Consulting, The Netherlands), Dr. Wolfgang Baltus (Wobalt Expedition Consultancy, Thailand), Harald Käb (narocon, Germany), Michael Carus and Achim Raschka (nova-Institut, Germany).
So, what will the future bring for the bio-based building block and polymer market?
The first part of the nova Session will address the latest market data from 2011 to 2016, future trends and recent developments. Which bio-based building blocks, polymers and applications are the most promising? Which countries offer the best political support? Who is ahead in the global race?
In the afternoon, the nova Session (www.bio-based.eu/nova-sessions) will offer in-depth information and discussion of two focal points:
- Bio-based materials – a revolutionary change: Comprehensive in depth information and latest developments, producers, drivers and lessons learnt for PHA, PLA, PUR/TPU, PA and polymers based on FDCA and SA.
- Asian markets for bio-based chemical building blocks and polymers: Latest data and development in China, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand. A global capacity of 2.4 million tonnes bio-based polymers was established in 2016, from which more than 45% of the most important bio-based polymers are produced in Asia.
The programme is available at www.bio-based.eu/nova-sessions/programme
Participants will get a 20% allowance code for nova-Institute’s market studies, available at www.bio-based.eu/reports
nova Sessions are an interactive and informative series of events around topical issues of the bio-based and CO2-based economy. Participants are encouraged to bring their own questions and shape the discussion.
