Biopolymers and Bioplastics 2016

About Conference

OMICS Group invites you to attend the 3rd International Conference and Exhibition on Biopolymers and Bioplastics going to be held on September 12-14, 2016 at San Antonio, USA. The main theme of the conference is “Advancements and Frontiers in Bioworld Innovation: Biopolymers- Bio plastics”.
Biopolymers and Bioplastics 2016 International Conference is an attempt to explore the various ways to utilize natural resources for betterment of the future, promising a better tomorrow for the progeny and a better vision for the springing research. Biopolymers and Bioplastics 2016 is anticipated to be one the best scientific conferences in USA. The scientific sessions of this International Conference on Biopolymers and Bioplastics has been designed on vivacious topics such as Green Chemicals, Industrial Biotechnology, Micro and Nano blends based on natural polymers. Biopolymers and Bioplastics-2016 is consisting of well-organized scientific program and effervescent speeches by the expertise. OMICS International Conferences Organizes 300+ Conferences, 500+ Workshops and 200+ Symposiums Every Year on Pharma, Medicine, Science and Technology across USA, Europe & Asia  (conference series) with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 400+ Open access journals which contains over 30000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members. OMICS International conferences always encourage the young researchers and students to share their excitement and enthusiasm with world class expertise.
Importance and Scope:
Renewable polymers are derived mostly or entirely from biomass and, therefore, are biobased. Biobased plastics are a critical component in assisting global efforts to reduce our dependence on petrochemical resources. In addition, biobased materials provide us an opportunity to decrease CO2 emissions and minimize the toxicity of polymer building blocks.  The demand for renewable polymers continues to grow at an annual rate of about 19% while global consumption is expected to reach one million tons by 2017.  However, the road to biobased plastics has been slow than many of us anticipated as they constitute less than 1% of the estimated 300 million tons of plastics produced annually. Therefore, there is a huge gap in demand verse availability that should be taken as a challenge, call to action and a grand opportunity to innovate and commercialize.  This conference will discuss the various classifications of biobased materials that may or may not be biodegradable. In addition, the conference will explore both ‘drop in’ and new-to-the-world bioplastics. We will discuss the importance of developing green chemistry routes to bioplastics so that biobased equals environmentally friendly. In addition, presentations will are invited on a wide array of biobased material families such as polyolefins, polyamides, polyesters, epoxy resins, polyurethanes and more. Other important topics that we plan to cover during the conference include challenges in the efficient conversion of lignocellulose and other biomass sources, new monomers/polymers, biobased advanced materials, lifecycle analysis, up and coming crops, food vs. bioplastic, when is biodegradability importnat, efficiency of recycling (myths versus reality),  local/national/international policies and regulations, hurdles to commercialization, breakthroughs in commercialization, progress in commercialization,  educating the public and more. The conference will feature prominent speakers from industry, academics, national laboratories, experts on navigating the regulatory landscape and others In addition, workshops will be organized to provide attendees with overviews in key areas.
Why to attend?
Biopolymers and Bioplastics-2016 is an event delivering the concept of biobased world across the globe. In the present world where the use of conventional plastics, the consequences of plastic products use and the waste management of these products when they become waste, is a current and pressing issue. Concerns focus on the potential impact of conventional plastics they cause to the environment.
