Biocoat webinar

An expanding market and stronger public awareness will assure a fast acceptance of bio-based, biodegradable and recyclable products. But how can you identify and value these products? What about end-of-life options such as biodegradability or recyclability? And what is their current position in circular economy? This webinar brings you up to date within the hour!

During this 1-hour webinar we will inform you on the topics of testing, certification and labeling of biodegradable or biobased materials. A presentation will be brought to you by Organic Waste Systems (OWS), a world-class reference in the testing of biodegradable materials, followed by a presentation by Denuo, the Belgian federation of the waste and recycling sector. We finish our webinar by presenting the Curcol project, in which the biobased colorant curcumin is investigated for its use in biodegradable applications.
