nova Session “Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers – Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2019-2024”

9 March 2020, Wöllhaf Conference Center, Airport Cologne/Bonn

A revised view on a turbulent and growing market
Turbulent times for bio-based polymers in 2019: PLA sold out despite expansion, as did PHA. Bio-based PP available for the first time, increased production of PBAT, PBS, bio-based PE, starch-containing polymer compounds and epoxy resins. Lower production is seen particularly in bio-based PET. At the same time, there is a lack of support from policy makers, who are taking bio-based and biodegradable plastics into collective punishment with fossil plastics in the Plastic Policy.
