Frost & Sullivan Hosts Webinar: Moving towards a greener world – Bioplastics Packaging
This briefing will benefit all companies where Bioplastics have great potential to replace traditional plastics in packaging applications
SPEAKER: Dr. Sujatha Vijayan, Senior Research Analyst, Chemicals, Materials & Food
Green packaging and the drive to reduce environmental pollution is receiving considerable attention at present. This briefing will provide an overview of bioplastics, its areas of application and how packaging companies will benefit from this current interest in bioplastics packaging.
The use of plastics in packaging and the consequences faced globally are covered in this briefing. The briefing will focus on three major bioplastics that are currently replacing traditional plastics.
The briefing will include a very detailed discussion on Starch, PLA and PHA that are used for packaging. Manufacturers have begun to respond to demand and are seeing many opportunities in this market. An overview on the materials market will identify the key factors and challenges, share key trends and dynamics, and recommendations for tackling the available opportunities.
All companies, including food, agriculture, personal care and other industrial sectors where Bioplastics have a great potential to replace traditional plastics in packaging applications should attend this briefing.
“There is a great concern about the environment and limited fossil fuel resources are the major driving factor for packaging companies to look forward for an alternative to fossil fuels,” said Dr. Sujatha Vijayan, Senior Research Analyst, Chemicals, Materials & Food. “Bioplastics are likely to replace several end applications of fossil fuels in the near future.”
"Among the various types of Bioplastics, starch, PLA and PHA are the most popular biodegradable plastics that find applications in packaging. New emerging technologies will aid better quality and properties of the Bioplastics used for packaging,” said Vijayan.
