    Novamont is a Benfefit Company, B Corp certified, world’s leader in the production of biodegradable and compostable bioplastics and biochemicals. In strong collaboration with farmers, composters, retail, brand owners, municipalities, over the last 30 years, Novamont has been working on the development of a circular bioeconomy model where compostable bioplastics have not only proven to be fundamental for organic waste collection, allowing Italy to become first in Europe for the recycling of food waste (47% vs 16% of the European average), but also to be the solution for all those packaging that today cannot be recycled due to their size and multi-material composition and to reduce pollution in agriculture.

    Bio-based, biodegradable and compostable. These are terms you regularly hear these days when talking about sustainability and sustainable products. But what do they actually mean? When something is biodegradable, does it mean it is also compostable or biobased? And is it actually as sustainable as it seems? These are terms that get thrown around a lot, but we notice lots of people, consumer and business, do not know what it mean. That’s why we want to dig into these terms, their significance and   their sustainable values.

    At Cosun Beet Company – Biobased Experts, we recognize the enormous potential of plants and know how to turn them into practical solutions to everyday problems. Taking plant-based materials, and using several concepts of upcycling and mild processing, we produce the functional ingredients that help boost both the performance and sustainability of products. In the presentation, you will learn more about these valorization concepts as used by Cosun Biobased Experts.

    CPCs are a range of cork composites that combine the adaptability of polymers and the lightness and sustainability of cork. We use bio-based polymers derived from recycled resources, developing sustainable and versatile solutions suitable for moulding, injection moulding and blow moulding processing. Compared to 100% synthetic materials, CPCs are more environmentally sustainable because they contain cork in their composition.

    Purpose of this presentation is to highlight opportunities in creating biobased alternatives for fossil-based plastics. With our advanced ability to manipulate bio- and inorganic polymers we can meet the evermore sophisticated industrial requirements for e.g. impact strength, durability and frost resistance. Come and hear how tuning soybean oil derivates and siloxanes can enhance your bioplastic offering.
