Welcome to the 13th ISBBB Conference

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 13th International Symposium on Bioplastics, Biocomposites & Biorefining: Moving towards a Sustainable Bioeconomy May 19 to 24, 2014 taking place in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.  ISBBB 2014 is a continuation of the popular and globally recognized International Conference on Biocomposites – Transition to Green Materials held in May of 2012 in Niagara Falls, Ontario.  

This symposium was created to reflect the broadening scope of ongoing research activities and new developments in the areas of biobased polymers and biorefinery, which have been added as key focus areas. This important international meeting will also continue to examine the ongoing innovations in the fields of biocomposites and green composites, and include a special focus on sustainability and durability of biobased materials for broad applications.

ISBBB 2014 will include oral and poster presentations in addition to industrial exhibits, and will feature plenary speakers and keynote talks by world-leading experts in all focus areas. The conference banquet will take place at the Hilton Hotel and Suites in beautiful Niagara Falls, Ontario, with complementary return shuttle service. The conference setting will also allow numerous networking opportunities, and encourage discussions and knowledge transfer of policy aspects and sustainability of biobased products.
