BioSinn – products for which biodegradation makes sense

2nd expert workshop as online event, 11 May 2020, 10:00 am–4:00 pm

++ UPDATE: online webinar only++

Due to the current circumstances and to protect everybody’s health we decided to offer an online webinar only regarding the 2nd BioSinn expert workshop (11 May), which is a side event of the 13th International Conference on Bio-based Materials. Please find further information on the project’s website in the near future. Registration is open now.

When does biodegradation makes ecoglogical sense? The goal of the ongoing project
“BioSinn”, realised by nova-Institute, supported by IKT Stuttgart and funded by FNR e.V. and BMEL, is to find plastic applications for which biodegradation is the most environmentally friendly end-of-life option. Especially when collecting and recycling is impossible. Please find here further information about the project:

In the last few months, we have worked with our advisory board and experts to create a short-list of 25 products where biodegradation makes sense.

Now, we organise the 2nd expert workshop in Cologne to discuss the applications in detail and also evaluate international implications. You can find the preliminary list on the project website. The workshop is free of charge, but requires a registration. Please register here.

Please note that the number of participants is limited to 40 and therefore, there is a limit of one person per company. The workshop will be held in English.

Date and time: 11 May 2020, 10:00 am–4:00 pm

The workshop is a side event of our 13th International Conference in Bio-based Materials ( Participants of our workshop are entitled to get a 20% discount to the big conference. Please let us know in case you are interested and we will provide you with an allowance code.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Cologne!
