As a response to this question, nova-Institute has decided to unite all relevant industries in the new Renewable Materials Conference from May 18 to 20, 2021, featuring a concept to present all renewable material solutions at one event: bio-based, CO2-based and recycled. There is a growing market demand for advanced and ready-to-use renewable-material solutions with a low carbon footprint that are fossil-free.
The three-day program of the first Renewable Materials Conference is almost final and gives an overview of the latest renewable material solutions, a performance show for a wide range of sustainable raw materials and technologies.
The first day (18 May of the conference will focus on renewable chemicals and building-blocks. Latest news about biorefineries will be presented by Borregaard, Cosun Beet, NESTE and UPM Biochemicals. BASF, Eastman and BioBTX will show their latest insights on chemical recycling and Lanzatech and Renolit will present innovations on CO2-based chemicals. Further, Meo Carbon Solution, nova-Institute, TNO and Vito will focus on new technologies, markets, sustainability assessments and strategies.
The second day is dedicated to renewable polymers and plastics, starting with the question of how polymers can be recycled and cycled. Participants will see presentations from Arkema, gr3n, INEOS, Recenso, Synova, TNO and UBQ. Covestro and Avantium will show how polymers and other products can be made from CO2, and both also present highlights on polymers made from biomass, together with Circular Biobased Delta, IFF and Ren Com, followed by presentations from the six nominees of the Innovation Award “Renewable Material of the Year 2021.”
The third day is about markets, trends and sustainability of bio- and CO2-based polymers and biocomposites, political framework conditions, biodegradability and packaging solutions. Presentations from Carbiolice, FKuR, nova-Institute and Papiertechnische Stiftung will provide deeper insights.
Fibers and biocomposites are renewable material solutions. The event will feature presentations on the latest trends and developments from Amorim Cork, Bcomp, HempFlax and Lenzing.
The conference will be held as an online event, which offers networking possibilities to the participants with the help of conference software from Finland.
