The 8th International Conference of Technology & Application of Biodegradable and Bio-based Plastics (ICTABP8) will be held on Oct.21-23, 2018 in Beijing China.

The use of bio-based and biodegradable materials is increasing rapidly, in response to consumer’s desire for products that have “Low Carbon” footprint and are safer for the environment. Around the world, more countries are implementing policies to promote the production and use of these materials. In China, bio-based materials and nanomaterials are included in new material frontier research field in the “Made in China 2025” strategy. Jilin Province began to implement “plastic ban order” in Jilin from Jan.1, 2015, which promotes the use of biodegradable plastic bags and disposable tableware. Major bio-based materials projects of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) have initiated demonstration application in Changchun, Wuhan, Shenzhen and Tianjin Cities. Biodegradable mulching film has been tested in Xinjiang, Yunnan and other provinces. Bio-based 3D printing materials have attracted the attention around the world.

The first ICTABP was held in 2004 in Chengdu, and the following conferences have been held every two years since. So far more than 2000 participants attended the conferences. ICTABP has become an important conference by providing a venue for scientific activities and for business opportunities for biodegradable and bio-based materials. ICTABP expects more than 300 people will attend the conference this year.

Experts from around the world are invited to share their insights with conference participants. Government officials will also participate in the conference.

Concurrent with the ICTABP8, the annual meeting of the 2018 Degradable Plastics Committee of CPPIA will be conducted too.
