7th International Conference and Exhibition on Biopolymers and Bioplastics

Biopolymers for Smart, Green and Sustainable Development

Henderson, NV, 2017-Jan-11 — /EPR Network/ — By following the successful campaign of “Biopolymers and Bioplastics 2016″, Conference Series LLC Conferences is very delighted to invite all the Scientists, Researchers, Professors, research fellows, Students, Corporate personnel, professionals, institutions and  Members of different physics associations to attend its 7th International Conference and Exhibition on Biopolymers and Bioplastics, to be held during October 19-21, 2017 at San Francisco, USA with a theme “Novel Trends and Advances in Bioworld Innovation: Biopolymers –Bioplastics”.

Biopolymers can be sustainable, carbon neutral and are always renewable, because they are made from plant materials which can be grown indefinitely. These plant materials come from agricultural non food crops. Therefore, the use of biopolymers would create a sustainable industry.

Bioplastics are a form of plastics made entirely or almost entirely from renewable raw materials such as vegetable oil, corn starch, and biomass whereas conventional plastics are made from petroleum (oil or gas). Bioplastics can replace conventional plastics in the field of their applications also and can be used in different sectors such as food packaging, plastic plates, cups, cutlery, plastic storage bags, storage containers or other plastic or composite material items you are buying.

Biopolymers and Bioplastics-2017 is an event delivering the concept of biobased world across the globe. In the present world where the use of conventional plastics, the consequences of plastic products use and the waste management of these products when they become waste, is a current and pressing issue. Concerns focus on the potential impact of conventional plastics they cause to the environment.

The scientific sessions of this 7th International Conference on Biopolymers and Bioplastics 2017 has been designed on vivacious topics such as Biomaterials and Biopolymers, Green Chemicals, Industrial Biotechnology, Future and Scope for Biopolymers and Bioplastics, Biopolymer Applications, Plastic Pollution and Waste Management, Biocomposite materials, Nanopolymers, Biodegradable Polymers, New-to-the-world Biopolyesters.

Biopolymers are biodegradable, and some are also compostable. Some biopolymers are biodegradable: they are broken down into CO2 and water by microorganisms. Some of these biodegradable biopolymers are compostable: they can be put into an industrial composting process and will break down by 90% within six months. Biopolymers that do this can be marked with a ‘compostable’ symbol, under European Standard EN 13432 (2000).Many types of packaging can be made from biopolymers: food trays, blown starch pellets for shipping fragile goods, thin films for wrapping. There is an increase of 20% (approx.) in the production of Bioplastics per year. With a market of around 1.2 million tons in 2011, there is a five-fold increase in production volumes by 2016, to almost 6 million tones. By 2020 Bioplastics production could rise to 12 million tones.


Beautiful city of San Francisco is not only known for its attractive weather and popular tourist destinations but also for the major universities and research centers that are focusing on Biopolymer and Bio-plastic research.  Apart from this, USA has been the largest producer of plastics and with rise in awareness on its adverse effects, North America turned as the biggest market for biopolymers, consuming more than one-third of the total global demand for biopolymers.  Many institutions and departments in United States such as Department of Defense (DOD), National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institute of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Department of Energy (DOE), Northwestern University, and University of Akron etc. are encouraging research on Biopolymers and Bioplastics. Various companies like Dupont, Cereplast , Metabolix , Natureworks LLC etc. are now a part of USA and their product services are entirely based on Biodegradable Plastics i.e., Bioplastics.

Major Associations around the Globe such as British Plastics Federation, European Council for Plasticizers and Intermediates, American Coatings Association, American Chemical Society (Division of Polymer Chemistry), American Physical Society Division of Polymer Physics (APS DPOLY), Polymer Division of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI Polymer Division)  , Belgian Polymer Group (BPG), Brazilian Polymer Association, European Polymer Federation , and Bio-Environmental Polymer Society are promoting Biopolymers.
