ASTM D6866 testing laboratory Beta Analytic is joining the Bioplastics Compounding and Processing 2012 conference as an exhibitor. Operations Manager for Latin America/Iberian Peninsula Martin Tesini will be taking charge of the laboratory’s tabletop display. The two-day conference will be held at the Hilton Miami Downtown in Miami, Florida, beginning on May 8, 2012.
“We are joining this year’s conference to promote ASTM D6866 testing to bioplastic compounders by highlighting the benefits of biobased content testing to their marketing efforts. Many bioplastic compounders are still not aware of the relevance of testing and third-party validation on biobased claims. I am also looking forward to get the latest updates on the biobased industry particularly on the latest bioplastic materials and their potential applications,” Mr. Tesini says.
According to organizer Applied Market Information LLC, this year’s conference will explore the best ways to manufacture bioplastic components, identify the best additive combinations, and detail the most cost-effective processing methods. An international panel of speakers are scheduled to take part in the following sessions:
– Additives for bioplastics
– Compounding and extrusion technology
– Innovations in bioplastic resins
– Bioplastics automotive applications
– Bioplastics packaging applications
– Environment and certification
