Green Materials

Polymers, Raw Materials and New Composites

Date: 09 April 2013

Time: 10:00 – 17:00

Venue: Hannover Fair – Hall: Leipzig (Convention Center)


On April 09 2013, East-West-Science Centre (OWWZ), University of Kassel with the support of the Deutsch Messe organizes the East-European Workshop: Green Materials – Polymers, Raw Materials and New Composites as part of the leading trade fair for environmental technologies “Industrial GreenTec” (Hannover Fair 08. – 12. April 2013).

To successfully overcome the global change from a oil-based industry to a bio-based economy biotechnology will play a key role.
Global sustainability pressures including high oil prices and environmental concerns provide a strong motivation for developing polymers that are more efficient in the use of materials and energy and are safe and prevent pollution. Many recent initiatives successfully focus on the use of renewable and environmentally benign bioplastics derived from agricultural and microbial resources.
To speed up the structural transformation to a bio-based industry, new types of collaboration between researchers and industry partners are needed.
According to this guiding idea the workshop will serve as a forum for scientific presentations and first contacts as well as a platform for project development and networking.
