Promotion of sustainable packaging has become a global issue. While Asia is the largest contributor to ocean-bound plastics and the fastest-growing region for packaging consumption, alternatives to fossil fuel plastics is urgently needed amid tightening regulations for plastics ban globally including the Asian countries. Bio-based and biodegradable plastics have the potential to displace over 100 million tons of traditional plastic by 2030 due to new legislation and downstream demand. With growing bioplastics materials such as PLA, PEF, PHA, PBS, bio PA, hemp bioplastic and many more, brand owners are more confident in switching their packaging material to sustainable options.
This webinar will analyse the latest development within various bioplastic materials from R&D, technologies, market potential, production capacity, emerging applications and end-of-life options.
