This event took place on 6 October 2011 at The Hilton Hotel Sheffield.
This event focussed on the industrial utilisation of biorenewable polymers. The event allowed key business people from the plastics and packaging industry, and scientists involved in bioplastics research and applications development, to gain an overview of bioplastic processing and properties, focusing on commercially available bioplastics such as Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) and Poly Hydroxy Alkanoate (PHA).
