International Seminar of Biotechnology

The biotechnology industry has shown exponential growth in recent years, as reflected by its increased use in many different sectors, including one with enormous room for expansion: the plastics industry. In fact, the biotechnology industry’s innovative solutions include recovering organic and synthetic waste for transformation into new sustainable raw materials, thus promoting the implementation of a truly circular economy.

The seminar will address the challenges and opportunities offered by biotechnology in the plastics sector in terms of waste management and treatment methods, as well as trends and initiatives being implemented internationally to achieve the goals set by the European Union.


Why you should attend?


This unique seminar focuses on biotechnology applied specifically to the plastics industry. There is no other event like it.


The programme will feature renowned speakers on the subject. They will discuss the main discoveries in research, development, innovation and global solutions for the entire value chain: raw material manufacturers, processing companies, machinery manufacturers, waste managers and recyclers.


Attending the event will provide plenty of networking opportunities, which can be further enhanced by attending as a sponsor.
