What is bioplastic?
The term bioplastic refers to a variety of plastic materials derived from renewable resources, are biodegradable, or both. This can lead to confusion regarding bioplastic materials.

  • A biobased and biodegradable plastic is one made from renewable resources, such as biomass (corn, wheat, potatoes, etc.), and is capable of biodegrading under certain conditions. Disposable items such as packaging, drinking bottles, single-use food containers, and cutlery are often made of these materials.
  • Non-biodegradable and bio-based bioplastics: These materials are also made from renewable resources, but are designed to last longer and not degrade.
  • Bio-derived is a new term to indicate plastic made from biomaterial using a mass-balance approach. This is a done by the established raw-material industry by changing their processes to tolerate a broader range of feedstock.
The Venue
The event is held in Industriens Hus in downtown Copenhagen. The Ticket includes breakfast, lunch, coffee, and networking drinks.
