BIOPOL 2017 (Mons) | 11 – 13 September 2017

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


– Bioplastics from natural polymers, directly extracted from biomass:

  • Polysaccharides
  • Proteins
  • Bacterial polymers

– Thermoplastic and thermosetting bioplastics, indirectly produced from biomass:

  • Poly(lactic acid) and polylactides.
  • 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
