Biocomposites Conference Cologne (BCC)In December, the unique opportunity to gain a comprehensive overview of the world of bio-composites will be offered in Cologne. The "Biocomposites Conference Cologne (BCC)", the world's largest conference and exhibition on the topic, will take place in Cologne on 6 and 7 December. 300 participants from 30 countries and more than 30 exhibitors are expected. In total, around 400,000 tonnes of biocomposites are already used in Europe every year, especially in the construction, furniture, automotive and consumer goods industries.
There is considerable interest in biocomposites from various parts of the industry. Special appearance and haptic, green image, weight savings, shorter cycle times, scratch resistance and, above all, a lower CO2 footprint are important factors for this development. The following international companies will be present at the conference: Avantium, BASF, Cordenka, Coperion, Covestro, DONG, Ford, nobilia, Renolit, Södra, Solvay, Stora Enso, Tesa, TransFuran, Velux, VW and Werzalit. At the conference, the "Biocomposite of the Year 2017"-Award will be selected from six nominated products. Detailed information on the candidates can be found at: www.biocompositescc.com/award
