Breaking it Down: Engineering for Degradability in Industrial Applications

Materials in the Real Elements

This talk will focus on today’s look at how the plant-based materials are really behaving in the real world. When exposed to moisture, heat, sun and other real day to day variables, how are these materials acting? How can they be used and where should they be used? How do fillers and additives play a role when the materials are in the elements?

Don’t just take our word for it

I strongly recommend Innovation Takes Root. It's a good opportunity to understand and see what happens in this area of biopolymers. It's an international event and not just on PLA. I think it's well done, well-managed, and well-organized. It was a good investment for me.

I'd definitely come back (to ITR) and recommend it. I think many different industries could learn something from a conference like this - it really is focused on the next level of sustainability.

It has been a wonderful event; very well organized. I especially appreciate the scheduling of activities, the alternation of speeches, and time to network, which has been one of the key successes from my point of view. We also felt very supported by your team; we had the feeling you believe in what Flo is doing and, for us, that's very important.
