Dynamic technological developments – Investors await market incentives:
At the beginning of October 2013, 140 leading minds from the world of CCU (carbon capture & utilization) met for three days in Essen at Europe’s largest conference on “CO2 as chemical feedstock – a challenge for sustainable chemistry”: www.co2-chemistry.eu. By late November all 35 presentations will be available to download, giving a complete overview of these exciting new technologies.
The next issue of the worldwide-distributed "International Business Directory for Bio-based Materials" (iBIB) to be released in spring 2014. iBIB2014/15 will be available as PDF edition, print edition, online-database and mobile version for the iPad and will reach more than 50,000 potential customers: http://www.bio-based.eu/iBIB
The biggest event on CO2 as chemical feedstock will bring new insights into the utilization of carbon dioxide: www.co2-chemistry.eu
For the second consecutive year, experts will gather in Essen to discuss the subject of CO2 as the feedstock of the future. After a successful start in 2012, nova-Institute will organise the 2nd Conference on CO2 as Feedstock for Chemistry and Polymers, 7-9 October 2013 at Haus der Technik in Essen (Germany). The conference is under the patronage of Ms. Svenja Schulze, Minister of Innovation, Science and Research of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Europe's current position in producing bio-based polymers is limited to a few polymers. Although Europe shows a strong demand for bio-based polymers, production tends to take place elsewhere, namely in Asia and America. The European Union's relatively weak position in the production of bio-based polymers is largely the consequence of an unfavourable political framework for the industrial material use of biomass. The European market data present the latest findings of production capacities of bio-based polymers in Europe based on the market study published by the nova-Institute in spring this year and its continuously updated database.
With 180 participants from 23 countries, this year's conference (www.biowerkstoff-kongress.de) further established it as a major industry meeting-place. This year's Innovation Prizes were awarded to Newlight Technologies, LLC, fischerwerke GmbH & Co. KG, and 4e solutions GmbH - ajaa! & TECNARO GmbH.
For the second year in a row, the conference "CO2 as chemical feedstock - a challenge for sustainable chemistry" (7 -9 October 2013, Haus der Technik, Essen, Germany) will concentrate on the CO2 economy:
nova-Institute GmbH organized a full two-day conference which allowed the world’s leading universities and companies in the field of CO2 capture, purification and derived polymers, products and fuels to present and discuss their latest developments and outline their vision for the full-scale implementation of a CO2 economy: www.co2-chemistry.eu
The project executes pre-standardization research for bio-based products. The results automatically feed into the CEN standardization process on the same topic. The goal is to provide the European and global market with horizontal standards on biomass content and biodegradability that have been assessed on a first set of different products, such as solvents, plastics and lubricants.
nova-Institute publishes the first results of a multi-client market survey of the international bioplastics market. The results are derived from the most comprehensive international market survey of bioplastics to date, which was carried out in conjunction with renowned international plastics experts. The “Market Study on Bio-based Polymers and Plastics in the World” will be published in January 2013 and contains, along with a 300-page report, access to the newly developed “Bioplastics Producer Database”.
The second edition of the 2012 "Sustainable Packaging" conference (abbreviated to "SusPack 2012") was held at the Anuga FoodTec on 29th and 30th March in Cologne, Germany. At the two-day conference, current issues of sustainability in the (bio-based) packaging industry were discussed and existing solutions presented. The SusPack Award was presented to the companies Constantia Flexibles GmbH, TIPA-Corp Ltd. und Imperial Ventures b.v.
The private research and consultant nova-Institute, based in Huerth (Germany), and the French Competitiveness Cluster Industries and Agro-Resources (IAR) in Laon (France) have signed a partnership agreement involving services to develop a bio-based economy, to give their subscribers additional benefits and to provide potential customers with the best available bio-based solutions on the fast-growing market in bio-based materials
Just launched - The first comprehensive multi-stakeholder market study!
More than 20 stakeholders took advantage of this unique opportunity and provided the initial funding: Bayer MaterialScience - Borealis Polyolefine - Braskem - DSM - European Bioplastics - Fischer - Ford - Omya - Plastics Europe - PURAC - Roquette - SABIC - Sofiproteol - Sulzer - Tereos Syral - Veolia (for a complete list see: www.bio-based.eu/market_study)
For the fourth time, the nova-Institute (Huerth, Germany) awarded the "Biomaterial of the Year 2011" at the International Congress on Bio-based Plastics and Composites in Cologne on March 15th 2011. As in the previous year, the company Coperion GmbH (Stuttgart), a leading manufacturer of twin screw extruders, sponsored the Innovation Award.
A new study from the nova-Institut shows higher resource efficiency, climate protection, improved security of raw material supplies and employment benefits through the increased material use of agricultural and forest products. Realignment of the policy framework supporting renewable resources is required.
The company Propper GmbH is using the bio-based plastic PHA in consumer goods for the first time worldwide. The Innovation Award was presented at the 3rd International Congress on Bio-based Plastics and Composites (www.biowerkstoff-kongress.de) for the third time by the nova-Institut and sponsored by the machine manufacturer Coperion.
The Third German WPC Congress www.wpc-kongress.de in Cologne took place on the 2nd-3rd of December 2009. With 300 participants from 26 countries and 30 exhibitors, it continues to establish itself as the leading European congress for the WPC industry. STAEDTLER was awarded the WPC Innovation Award 2009 for its WOPEX pencil.
