Symposium 2019

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 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 for performance materials of biobased residual sidestreams 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.
