AMI’s Bioplastics Compounding and Processing 2011 two day itinerary features renowned speakers from all over the country. Representations of companies speaking are major brand owners from THE PROCTER AND GAMBLE COMPANY and KIMBERLY-CLARK CORPORATION, our keynote speaker given by a world expert on Bioplastics from MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY and stimulating presentation from RTP COMPANY, NISSEI AMERICA, INC., FKUR PLASTICS CORP., CLARIANT INTERNATIONAL LTD, LEISTRITZ, NATUREWORKS LLC, NOVAMONT SPA, BETA ANALYTIC, ORGANIC WASTE SYSTEMS (OWS), plus many more!


Network with our confirmed exhibitors including: Brabender Technologie Inc., Colortronic North America Inc., FKUR Plastics Corp., GALA, Kreyenborg Industries, Rio Tinto Minerals, Rhein Chemie, and CPM Century Extrusion.


Join these companies as both bio-sourced and biodegradable plastics will be discussed. They will touch upon topics of compounding and processing technology while learning about the newest development in these relatively new polymers that can be used in a wider range of applications. 
There are a variety of certification and testing protocols in place for bioplastic materials and products, which the buyer and the processor need to understand to select appropriate compounds and machinery while consideration of the life cycle analysis (LCA) and the carbon footprint of products formed from these plastics. The end performance has to meet appropriate requirements from FDA approvals for food contact and medical applications, to physical strength in packaging, electronic and automotive.
