The Premier Trade show for all biobased Industries; 15.02-16.02.2017; Cologne, Germany
Exhibiting at BiobasedWorld is your chance to showcase your expertise in bioeconomy to an international audience.
We turn the spotlight on a multi-billion-dollar business with biobased products that are part of our daily lives as well as the supply chain that leads up to them. Look forward to the premier trade show that takes the bioeconomy from "Let's talk about it" to "let's do it".
Although this German article states that bioplastic is not that succesfull as it should be, we are still convinced to contribute with P4SB to a better world. Can we change the authors opinion'? Let´s see what can be achieve during the next years!
