Bio-based and CO2-based Solutions
The only way for chemicals and plastics to become sustainable, climate-friendly and part of the circular economy is the complete substitution of fossil carbon with renewable carbon from alternative sources: biomass, CO2 and recycling. Sold out PLA in 2019 has led to the installation of increased capacities in 2020, PE and PP made from bio-based naphtha are breaking ground and future expansion for bio-based polyamides will come into place, growth for bio-based polymers is expected to over 6 % until 2025. Additionally, the use of CO2 as chemical feedstock for polymers has been intensively diversified. Besides the long-established use of CO2 for the synthesis of polycarbonates, also polyurethanes can already be based on it. Optimised technology approaches in fermentation, electrochemistry and catalysts for conversion are emerging and broaden the CO2-based polymer portfolio.
Get the newest market developments for bio-based building blocks and polymers as well as the latest technology developments for CO2-based polymers. Join the nova Session and discuss with the experts.
The nova-Institute invites to the nova Session “Renewable Polymers: Production and Trends 2020-2025” on 17 February, 2021 and will take place as online event via zoom.
The workshop will focus on the market report “Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers –Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2020-2025” and the trend report “Carbon dioxide (CO2) as chemical feedstock for polymers – technologies, polymers, developers and producers”, which will be published in January 2021.
The main authors of the report will participate in the workshop and discuss with you. The nova Session offers the unique opportunity to exchange information about current market and technology developments at the highest level. Book your zoom event for 450 EUR (excl. 19% VAT) here.
With the confirmation mail of your registration, you will receive a 15 % allowance code for the purchase of the reports “Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers –Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2020-2025” and the trend report “Carbon dioxide (CO2) as chemical feedstock for polymers – technologies, polymers, developers and producers”(www.bio-based.eu/reports).
