Expert Workshop: BioSinn – products for which biodegradation makes sense
In two recent webinars, more than 70 participants discussed applications, for which biodegradation is the most environmentally friendly end-of-life option. When does biodegradation make ecological sense? The goal of the project “BioSinn”, realised by nova-Institute, supported by IKT Stuttgart and funded by FNR e.V. and BMEL, is to find plastic applications for which biodegradation is the most environmentally friendly end-of-life option. Especially when collecting and recycling is impossible. The outcome of the project will serve as a guideline for decision makers in industry and politics including 25 fact sheets, describing state-of-the-art, problems and suitable environmentally friendly substitution materials for each of the 25 applications. Please find further information about the project here: http://nova-institute.eu/biosinn/home In the previous two workshops, a board of more than 70 experts shared their knowledge about the exciting applications. In the 3rd expert workshop, the current state of the project will be presented and discussed. Experts and interested parties are welcome to register.
