Renewable Materials Conference 2021
Which renewable materials are solutions that meet the needs of future societies? As a response to this challenging question, nova-Institute has decided to unite all relevant industries in the new “Renewable Materials Conference”, May 18–20, 2021, featuring a unique 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 sustainable material solutions with a low carbon footprint – and fossil-free. As a response to this challenge, nova-Institute has decided to unite all relevant industries in the new Renewable Materials Conference (RMC). Over three days, participants get a complete overview of the latest renewable material solutions from a wide range of sustainable raw materials and technologies.
The first day will be focusing on building blocks and chemicals, the second on polymers and plastics and the third on plastic and composite materials. Or in other words: All material solutions based on renewable carbon – avoiding the use of additional fossil carbon.
The Renewable Materials Conference is the follow-up event to the “13th International Conference on Bio-based Materials”, which builds on a successful history of previous conferences: In 2019, more than 270 participants attended and 30 exhibitors were present. It was the second largest event on bio-based materials in Europe and continues within this new concept. The conference also integrates topics from the “Biocomposites Conference Cologne” and extends the conference with presentations on chemicals and polymers from CO2 use (CCU) as well as new solutions from the field of recycling, so that the entire spectrum of renewable materials is covered.
The conference will help shape the sustainable future of chemicals and materials and will provide new advantages and synergies by establishing a meeting point for numerous cross-sectoral networking opportunities.
Focus of the conference
All renewable material solutions at one event: bio-based, CO2-based and recycled
Shape the sustainable future of chemicals and materials! The Renewable Materials Conference will provide new advantages and synergies by establishing a meeting point for numerous cross-sectoral networking opportunities.
- First day: Renewable Chemicals and Building Blocks from Biorefineries, CCU and Chemical Recycling
- Second day: Renewable Polymers and Plastics from Biomass, CO2 and Recycling, Innovation Award
- Third day: Renewable Plastics and Composites, Packaging and Biodegradation
The programme includes a diverse range of bio-based materials such as bio-based polymers and plastics as well as biocomposites (first and second generation, biowaste), CO2-based materials (from fossil and biogenic point sources, atmosphere) as well as mechanically and chemically recycled materials.
