Biopolymers Congress 2018

Session/Track

Track 1: Advanced Biopolymers

Biopolymers, the most promising of which is Polylactide (PLA), are a type of plastic which, instead of being manufactured from petrochemicals, are made from sustainable feedstock’s such as sugar, starch or Cellulose. Till date, the use of biopolymers, including first generation PLA, has been limited by their Physical properties and relatively high cost of manufacture. Next generation biopolymers, including Plastic component fabrication, Polysaccharides second generation PLA, are expected to be cheaper and to offer improved performance and a wider application reach, enabling them to capture an increasing share of the various markets for Biopolymers. Innovations has already achieved significant success with its early investments its £1.5m investment in obesity drug developer  return up to £22m, following its sale for£100m in 2013, while the sale of Respivert, a small molecule drug discovery company, resulted in Innovations realizing £9.5m, a 4.7 return on investment. In the year to2015, Innovations invested £14.0m in 20 ventures, helping to launch three new companies.

Biopolymers are polymers that occur in nature for example Carbohydrates and proteins.  Biopolymers are already being produced commercially on large scales, although they usually are not used for the production of plastics. Even if only a small percentage of the biopolymers already being produced were used in the production of plastics, it would significantly decrease our dependence on manufactured, non-renewable resources.

Track 2:  Biopolymers; Processing and Products

This session presents two main aspects of biopolymers; processing and product, The recent advance in converting natural polymers such as starchprotein, and cellulose for melt processing is briefly reviewed. The technical challenges for using natural polymers for thermoplastic applications and recent innovation in extrusion plasticization of starch enabling rapid expansion of starch for high valued polymer applications are summarized. Synthetic biopolyesters including polylactic acid (PLA), terpolymer of terephthalic acid, adipic acid, and butandiol (Ecoflex polymer), and polybutylene succinate (PBS) are also briefly reviewed and provided with a special focus on inherent properties relevant to fiber and nonwoven applications. Technical approaches are discussed to enable high performance biopolyester melt spun webs. The effects on crystallization kinetics of heterogeneous nucleation with various nucleating agents are explored by using Avrami model. Process modifications are discussed including heated quench and heated fiber draw to maximize fibrous web crystallinity. Some biopolymers such as starch, protein, algae, and spunbond PLA are selected for anaerobic biodegradation in order to understand how they behave in the waste disposal environment. The results indicate that starch can achieve a complete biodegradation within about one month timeframe, whereas protein and algae can achieve 62 to 70% biodegradation. PLA biodegradation in anaerobic conditions is highly affected by degrading temperatures relative to its glass transition temperature.

Track 3: Biopolymers: Biomedical and Environmental Applications

To Review the recent application and trends about Biopolymers and its Environmental Applications, this session is designed and focused to discuss advances in technology in all areas from chemical synthesis or biosynthesis to end use environment applications. 

Track 4: Biodegradable Polymers Materials

This session presents the product made from natural fiber reinforce biodegradable polymer composites are yet to be seen in high magnitude. The development of biodegradable polymer composites promotes the use of environmentally friendly materials. Biodegradable Polymers can also use to control the drug release rate from the formulations. The applications of polymers in drug delivery have been realized because polymers offer unique properties which so far have not been attained by any other materials.

Track 5: Biopolymers and Biodegradable Plastics

This session presents the Biodegradable plastics (Bio plastics) are one of the important issues in plastic industry. These are natural biopolymers that are synthesized and catabolized by various organisms. These materials do not cause toxic effect to the nature. The use of biopolymers could markedly increase as more durable versions are developed, and the cost to manufacture these bio-plastics continues to go fall. Bio-plastics can replace conventional plastics in the field of their applications also and can be used in different sectors such as food packaging, plastic plates, cups, cutlery, plastic storage bags, storage containers or other plastic or composite materials items you are buying and therefore can help in making environment sustainable.

Track 6: Biopolymers from Renewable Resources

This session presents  the new biomass based composition from renewable resources. Now a day, it is clearly observed from the current scenario of environmental preservation a continuous definition and approval of growingly restrictive regulations and an increase in the market demand for products with a lower ecological footprint. Especially the automobile sector has been identified as one of the most involved in the adoption of protectionist measures towards the environment preservation, translating some of their major concerns in the increase of green materials demands. The technical performances of the developed base biopolymers will be enhanced by means of the addition of natural reinforcements functionalized to better tailor its properties of compatibility, dispersion, aspect ratio, etc.

Track 7: Biopolymers: Applications and Trends

This session contents the biopolymers application and trends in different field. It provides an up-to-date summary of the varying market applications of biopolymers characterized by biodegradability and sustainability. It includes tables with the commercial names and properties of each biopolymer family, along with biopolymers for each marketing segment, not only presenting all the major market players, but also highlighting trends and new developments in products.   Biopolymers have been mainly used by mankind as food, or for making clothing and furniture. Since the industrial time, fossil fuels such as oil are the greatest source in the development and manufacture of almost every commercial product, such as the plastic, which is currently used at a very large scale. But these fuels are not unlimited resources, and environmental concerns over all aspects of using fossil fuels for production and energy must be taken into account.

Track 8: Principles of Polymer Chemistry  

This session contents a how smaller molecules combined formed a useful material with specific characteristics by manipulating the molecular structure of the monomers/polymers used and different polymerization techniques.

Track 9: Microwave-Enhanced Polymer Chemistry and Technology

 This session approaches Polymer technology forms one of the largest areas of application of microwave technology, the methods and procedures used therein are among the most developed. Microwave-Enhanced Polymer Chemistry and Technology describes novel approaches to polymer processing using microwave technologies. Coverage includes background and scientific data, analysis of processes and product properties in comparison with existing technology, applications that are being used in various approaches, and the status of current research. Features of microwave irradiation, i.e., solvent-free reactionslow wasteenergy efficiencyhigh yieldshort reaction time, and possible use of alternative solvents, can play an important role in the development of green chemistry methods.

Track 10: Recent Advances in Polymer Chemistry

This session content advances in polymer technology. Polymer Chemistry is the branch of chemistry that deals with number of monomer unit . Oligomers with only a few repeating units to high polymers with thousands or millions of repeating units. Polymer Chemistry includes branches that mimic the divisions of the field of chemistry as a whole, with synthetic (preparation methods) and physical (property determination), biological (proteins, polysaccharides, and polynucleic acids), and analytical (qualitative and quantitative analysis) chemistry. Pre-existing polymers can also be modified by chemical means - including grafting or functionalization reactions. Polymerization and modification reactions can be employed to produce designer polymers as new materials with practically any desired properties

Track 11: Polymer Nanotechnology

This session presents the polymer Nanotechnology. and its application in various field. Nanotechnology is one of the most popular areas for current research and development in basically all technical disciplines. This obviously includes  polymer Nanotechnology which include microelectronics (which could now be referred to as nanomaterial), polymer-based biomaterials, Nano medicine, Nano emulsion particles; fuel cell electrode polymer bound catalysts, layer-by-layer self-assembled polymer films, electros pun nanofabrication, imprint lithographypolymer blends and Nano composites. Even in the field of nanocomposites, many diverse topics exist including composite reinforcement, barrier properties, flame resistance, electro-optical properties, cosmetic applications, bactericidal properties. Nanotechnology is not new to polymer science as prior studies before the ages of nanotechnology involved Nano scale dimensions but were not specifically referred to as nanotechnology until recently. Phase separated polymer blends often achieve Nano scale phase dimensions; block copolymer domain morphology is usually at the Nano scale level; asymmetric membranes often have Nano scale void structure, mini emulsion particles In the large field of nanotechnology, polymer matrix based Nano composites have become a prominent area of current research and development.

Track 12: Synthetic Polymers

This session content application and synthesis of synthetic polymer Synthetic Polymers is a comprehensive introduction to the technologies involved in the synthesis of the main classes of engineering high polymers used in such materials as plastics, fibers, rubbers, foams, adhesives and coatings. Besides the basic processes, this volume includes information on physical, chemical and mechanical characteristics - key factors with respect to obtaining the right end products. It also focuses on the main application of synthetic polymers in different engineering areas and gives data on production and consumption. Over 60 technological flowcharts are presented in a clear and concise manner, to provide the reader with essential information on relevant operations.

Track 13: Polymers for catalysis for energy application

 This session content polymer energy application. Global demand for low cost, efficient and sustainable energy production is ever increasing. Driven by recent discoveries and innovation in the science and technology of materials, applications based on functional materials are becoming increasingly important. Functional materials for sustainable energy applications provide an essential guide to the development and application of these materials in sustainable energy production.

Track 14: Bio-catalysis in biochemistry

This session contain bio-catalyst and function.  The main function of catalysts is to speed up reactions without becoming a part of the reaction products. Enzymes, the biological catalysts are highly specific, catalyzing a single chemical reaction or a very few closely related reactions. The exact structure of an enzyme and its active site determines the specificity of the enzyme. Substrate molecules bind themselves at the enzyme's active site. Substrates initially bind to the enzymes by non-covalent interactions, including hydrogen bondsionic bonds and hydrophobic interactions. Enzymes lower the activation energy and the reactions proceed toward equilibrium more rapidly than the uncatalyzed reactions. Both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells commonly use allosteric regulation in responding to changes in conditions within the cells. Allosteric regulation can be positive or negative. Regulation by allosteric inhibitors is common in many biosynthetic pathways. A protective peptide in zymogens regulates by inactivating the protein.

Track 15: Solid waste management of polymers

This session content plastic waste management .In the past 30 years, plastic products have gained universal use not only in food, clothing and shelter, but also in the transportation, construction, medical and leisure industries. Whereas previously synthetic plastics were developed as durable substitute products, increasing concern for the global environment and solid waste management has resulted in an urgent demand for biodegradable plastics

Track 16: Marketing of polymer

 This session presents the strategy in building market. The important part of marketing is market mix and consists of the marketing 'tools' you are going to use. But marketing strategy is more than the marketing of mixed polymers and plastics. The marketing strategy sets your marketing goals, defines your target markets and describes how you will go about positioning the business to achieve advantage over your competitors. The marketing mix, which follows from your marketing strategy, is how you achieve that 'unique selling proposition' and deliver benefits to your customers.

When you have developed your marketing strategy, it is usually written down in a marketing plan. The plan usually goes further than the strategy, including detail such as budgets. You need to have a marketing strategy before you can write a marketing plan. Your marketing strategy may serve you well for a number of years but the details, such as budgets for marketing activities, of the marketing plan may need to be updated every year.
