    The emerging region of South/Central Americas, Andean and the Caribbean isles has enormous potential to strengthen its PET applications – shifting from glass to PET bottles and packaging. With its estimated population of 500 million people, strong consumerism pattern and growing economies, this region is looking at PET as the material of choice to replace traditional pack formats. As packaging trends move toward light-weight and used for products with extended shelf-life, PET bottles, sheets and jars are becoming the new packaging option. The growing applications of PET have also triggered PET capacity expansion globally, shifting trade dynamics in the region and globally. As the regional market matures to meet sustainable packaging, recycled PET is also taking precedence and finding its niche in the Central America & Caribbean markets.
    Join CMT’s 3rd SCAPET to gain valuable market information on the bottling and beverage sector, vital packaging and technology trends and recycling developments!

     "Biobased Materials" continue to grow in importance globally in a wide variety of industrial sectors, and not only because of reasons associated with sustainability. The primary reason is the technical benefits of these materials. The potential for new products and new applications based on existing and new materials is far from being exhausted.

    For the 10th time, the Congress for Biobased Materials, Natural Fibres and WPC provides a platform for industrial researchers, engineers and academics to present, exchange and discuss the latest developments, trends in innovations as well as strategic questions.

    Over the years the congress has attracted a tremendous number of participants (in the recent years from 40 countries), which makes it one of the leading events in Europe.
