Bioplastics Organisations Network Europe Launched

The Bioplastics Organisations Network Europe (BON Europe) is a newly formed collaboration of national bioplastics organizations from across Europe. BON Europe was launched in summer 2015 with the mission to connect initiatives around the bioplastics industry on EU level and in the Member States.

The BON Europe partner organizations represent companies that produce, convert or use bioplastics that are biobased, biodegradable or both, as well as upstream and downstream sectors, such as agriculture and waste management. The founding members include: Belgian BioPackaging (Belgium), Club Bio-plastiques (France), Der Verbund kompostierbare Produkte (Germany), Holland Bioplastics (The Netherlands), and Nordisk Bioplastförening (Nordic countries). European Bioplastics (EUBP) acts as the umbrella organisation and coordinates the BON network.

“The main objective of BON Europe is to push for an economically and politically favourable landscape for bioplastics in Europe”, says François de Bie, Chairman of European Bioplastics. “This includes promoting legislative measures to encourage market uptake and eco-design of products, equal access as well as use of responsibly sourced renewable raw materials, as well as promoting an efficient waste management infrastructure throughout Europe that supports separate biowaste collection and organic recycling.”

“Over the coming years, we will work together on answering vital questions and developing joint statements regarding standardisation, sourcing of biomass, end-of-life-options, and sustainability assessment of bioplastics in order to strengthen our position in negotiations and lobbying activities on EU and Member State level and to achieve the best possible progress of the industry”, says Hasso von Pogrell, Managing Director of European Bioplastics.
