Fuming “Steven” Liu, Beta Analytic’s China Operations Manager, has promoted biobased content testing via ASTM D6866 at the Third China International Symposium on the Application of Biodegradable Plastics held in Guangzhou, China. Mr. Liu also visited the the China Import & Export Fair Pazhou Complex for the 25th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries (Chinaplas 2011), which was considered to be Asia’s No. 1 plastics and rubber trade fair.
Mr. Liu was one of the speakers on Day 2 of the symposium. He talked about ASTM D6866 testing and the ecolabeling programs that require or recommend the test. Several plastics manufacturers have expressed interest in testing. As with his efforts in other previous conferences, Mr. Liu has successfully promoted not only Beta Analytic’s services but also biobased content testing. The Application of Biodegradable Plastics symposium was held on May 15-16, 2011.

Mr. Liu joined the conference, which tackled Bioplastics and Degradable Plastics, Recycling and Energy-saving issues. Chinaplas 2011 started on May 17 and ended on May 20.
