Welcome

Dear colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate in the 7th International Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable Polymers (BIOPOL-2019) to be held Stockholm (Sweden) on 17-20th June 2019.

 

The conference has the aim to provide a forum for researchers, students and companies from all over the world to exchange up-to-date ideas and opinions on current research and new applications of biopolymers and biocomposites

 

 

Topics

- Bioplastics from natural polymers, directly extracted from biomass:

    Polysaccharides

    Proteins

    Bacterial polymers

 

- Thermoplastic and thermosetting bioplastics, indirectly produced from biomass:

Poly(lactic acid) and Bio-polyesters.

Glyceride based materials from vegetable oils

Materials based on polyols extracted from biomass

 

- Bioproduction, biotech & biodegradability:

Biocatalysis and biotechnological production

Enzymatic production and modification

Biodegradation, eco-toxicity, LCA

 

- Multiphase systems:

Bio-based blends

Biocomposites and nano-biocomposites

 

- Industrial applications:

Bio-based and/or biodegradable packaging

Bio-based building materials

Materials for health-care

 

- Valorization of agro-residues and wastes for synthesis of monomers and chemicals

 

Background

 

1st and 2nd BIOPOL were organized in Alicante (Spain) in October 2007 and 2009, BIOPOL-2011 was held in Strasbourg (France), BIOPOL-2013 in Rome (Italy), BIOPOL-2015 in Donostia-San Sebastian (Spain) and BIOPOL-2017 in Mons (Belgium). All these previous conferences were successful, with more than 250 researchers from around the world presenting their latest results on this field, indicating the current growing interest for the specific topics addressed. The success of the previous editions aimed us to organize this 7th edition. Our challenge is to offer an attractive scientific program while promoting contacts between participants in a relaxed and pleasant environment offered by the beautiful atmosphere in Stockholm.
