The Biodegradable Plastic Packaging Conference which is being organised by IntertechPir will be held in Prague, 17-18 in June. According to an article published on Food Production Daily,
the conference is set to tackle some difficult issues around biodegradable plastics.
Due to the demand for alternatives to petroleum-based plastics, the bioplastic industry has rapidly expanded. While this has been welcomed as a positive move, the industry has also come under scrutiny when it comes to issues of certification and its reliance on food crops, like maize.
