Training session bioplastic and biobased materials


The bioplastic and biobased materials are here to stay. Public opinion demands, with increasing force, sustainable products. The industry, to respond to this desire, is developing biobased plastics (from renewable sources) and sustainable plastics. Some brands have already started to implement them and offer their products with biobased packaging.

In order to know what are the current trends in the use of bioplastics and biobased, as well as to present a novel training proposal on the transformation of these materials, Aitiip organizes a day at its facilities on October 15.

On this day will present the training proposal "Bioplastictrain" that Aitiip has developed together with Fraunhofer, the University of Pisa, Tecos and Tecnopackaging, which aims to train the current workers of the plastics industry in the transformation of bioplastics. Likewise, current projects will be shown through which they are searching and finding this type of biobased alternatives. The conference will talk about 3D printing with advanced biobased materials in the automotive sector, biobased composite materials (both in their fabrics and in their resins) and the use of agroalimentary waste from the citrus, mushroom and banana industry in the development of biobased products.

Assistance is free but requires registration.
