Development of Biobased Plastics Independent of The Future
09/10/2013 - 12/31/2013

The SPI Bioplastics Council hosted a webinar which challenged the widely held perception that the biobased plastics industry is inextricably linked to and dependent on the emergence of a robust biorefining industry. The webinar: " Addressed important differences between today's world v. years ago when the petrochemicals industry was linked to and dependent on a petroleum refining industry whose major target were fuels. " Examined these differences from several angles and the implications which could have enabled biobased plastics to grow independently of biofuels. " Addressed the concept that a commercially viable scale for biobased plastics can be much smaller than a commercially viable scale for biofuels. " Discussed economic, societal and environmental challenges as the biobased plastics industry develops. " Provided an overview of industry-driven efforts to navigate toward a future with a more sustainable biobased plastics industry
