Bioplastics: Myths and Truths
Thursday, February 21, 2019
The term bioplastics is a very broad one that, moreover, can be interpreted in multiple ways. As a result, there is much confusion about what precisely bioplastics are, and even more importantly, what they are not. In this webinar, we will explore the differences between bio-based, biodegradable and compostable materials. We’ll also examine a few of the myths surrounding this group of materials and dispel a number of common misconceptions regarding their durability, processability and mechanical properties.
Bioplastics today are viewed as a crucial component in the drive to create a fully sustainable and circular bioeconomy, and they will, in the future, play an increasingly important role in plastics product development and the plastics processing industry.
