Scope: The Bioplastics SIG provides a unified forum for promoting open exchange of scientific and engineering knowledge related to polymeric materials that are fully or partially biobased with a “Cradle-to-Cradle” emphasis. Areas of interest include synthesis, characterization, processing, structure-property relationships, degradation, product design and development, application development, modeling, regulations and compliance, and life-cycle analyses. To achieve its objectives, the SIG collaborates closely with other interested technical divisions of SPE and organizations to coordinate the dissemination of knowledge and understanding of bioplastics through appropriate channels.
The April 2017 Bioplastics SIG Newsletter is now available. See inside for highlights on ANTEC® Anaheim 2017, the latest bioplastics spotlight: IM Polymer GmbH, and more.
