19 June 2019 09:00 - 16:30
We are pleased to announce that the 8th Circular and Biobased Performance Materials Symposium will take place in Wageningen, the Netherlands, on Wednesday 19 June 2019. Please save this date in your calendar.
At our annual symposium, we will look closely at the latest trends and developments in the application in new products of available bioplastics and the creation of new biobased polymers. In this edition, special attention will be given to the use of performance materials of biobased residual side streams and post-consumer waste. Key industry players from the entire value chain, ranging from waste, agrifood to polymer processing companies, end application producers and users, will reflect on their R&D strategies.

In the Circular and Biobased Performance Materials (CBPM) research programme, companies and knowledge institutes from across the value chain are working together in developing high-quality materials based on biomass and post-use waste; materials that are being increasingly applied in practice. The research focuses on three types of materials: polymers produced by plants, polymers from biobased building blocks produced via biotechnology or chemical catalysis and polymers from waste. The CBPM programme is partly financed by the Dutch Government and is led by Wageningen Food & Biobased Research.
