SATW has published a factsheet on bioplastics.
In November 2018 a first SATW Innovation Forum on “Biopolymers” took place. Invited stakeholders from academic research institutions, industry and administration discussed the current situation and possible shortcomings in Switzerland and charted possible scenarios for development. The afternoon was dominated by discussions on consumer goods and convenient plastics. It became clear that Switzerland has very limited opportunities in the field of bulk (bio)plastics. It can, however, serve as a role model, develop high-tech solutions and “educate” customers. Development and application of high-tech, specialty biopolymers should be the primary targets for the Swiss economic space.
This factsheet is a result from this forum.
