Novamont North America at NPE2018: the plastics industry's most influential event
NPE2018: The Plastic Show, one of the world's largest trade fairs entirely dedicated to the plastics sector, will take place the next week, from 7 to 11 May, in Orlando, Florida.
The event, sponsored by the Plastics Industry Association, will welcome 2,000 exhibitors and over 65,000 professionals, coming from over 100 countries, operating throughout the entire value chain. The fair will be an opportunity for all industry professionals to test new machineries running, to gather global market information and learn about the most emerging technologies on every stage of the plastic production.
The Novamont Group, with Novamont North America, will be present at the Booth #S20202 where the wide range of MATER-BI products will be presented. Mater-Bi is the Novamont’s family of biodegradable and compostable bioplastics which, thanks to their origin from renewable sources and their biodegradability and compostability, contribute to improve the quality and quantity of organic waste collection. Organic waste, if transformed into compost, could be used in agriculture to restore organic matter in soils, thus contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to fight desertification.
Compostable Shopping Bags, fruit and vegetable bags, foodservice products, thermoformed trays, plates, capsules and other applications made of Mater-Bi, will also be exhibited at the Sustainability Showcase & Lounge area, at the Plastics Industry Association stand, of which Novamont North America is a member in the Bioplastic Division.
