It’s a better choice – seminars in the Nordic countries September 10-12, 2019

The Nordic Bioplastics Association invites the plastic business to be part of a road tour in the Nordic countries to educate and inspire stakeholders who wants to understand more about the opportunities with biobased plastics. The tour visited the capitals in Finland, Sweden and Norway during three days in September. The interest to participate in the seminars was very high, there even was a waiting list. During the three days alltogether 500 decision makers was reached by the information why biobased plastics is a better choice (compared to fossil) – already today.

Åke Rosén, the founder of GAIA BioMaterials was one of the speakers telling the story of the uniqueness of Biodolomer. Åke also marked the importance of being part of EU LIFE15 program for financial support to develop Biodolomer to become fully renewable, biodegradable and compostable. To make the presentation more lively Åke always brings products so the audience can feel, touch and test the material, which is very much appreciated.

Biodolomer for LIFE seminar in Brussels April 25 2019

Biodolomer for LIFE invited professionals in the plastic business, professional organizations and cities/regions in EU to a breakfast seminar to discuss that it is possible already today to substitute 80% of the fossil volume plastics with the renewable, biodegradable and compostable material Biodolomer.

Åsa Webber, ambassador at the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU and Sebastien Paqout, member of the cabinett of commisioner Vella spoke about their view on fossil plastics and biomaterial. Åke Rosen, the founder of GAIA told the story of Biodolomer and showed many products made from the material that attracted a lot of attention among the audience. They were also given the opportunity to bring some products home for testing.

For a biobased material like Biodolomer to expand on the market it needs support from the legislation. Legislator needs to listen to researchers/specialists within the field of biomaterials in order to understand  just how far the development of degradable biomaterials has come and make decisions based on that understanding.
