Track 1: Natural polymers

Natural polymers are a group of naturally occurring polymers and chemical modifications of these polymers. Cellulose, starch, lignin, chitin, and various polysaccharides are included in this group. These materials research and their outgrowth offer a wide range of properties and applications. Natural polymers are liable to be biodegradable, although the rate of degeneration is generally inversely proportional to the extent of chemical modification for Polymeric Materials. US companies demand for natural polymers is forecast to expand 6.9 percent annually to $4.6 billion in 2016. Cellulose ethers, methyl cellulose, will remain the largest product segment. This study analyzes the $3.3 billion US natural biopolymer industries. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by market.

Track 2: Advanced Biopolymers

Polylactide (PLA) the most promising one of Biopolymers these are a type of plastics which is being manufactured from petrochemicals, generated from sustainable feed stocks such as sugar, starch or Cellulose. Till date, the use of biopolymers, includes the first generation PLA, has been limited by their Physical properties and relatively high cost to manufacture. Next generation biopolymers, are the Plastics component fabrication, Polysaccharides second generation PLA, are to be cheaper and to improve their performance and a wide variety of application to capture an increasing share of the various markets for Biopolymers. Innovations has already achieved significant success with its early investments its $1.5m investment in obesity drug developer return up to $22m, following its sale for $100m in 2013, while the sale of a small molecule drug discovery company, resulted in Innovations realizing $9.5m, a 4.7 return on investment. In year 2015, Innovations invested $14.0m in 20 ventures, helping to launch three new companies.

Track 3: Bioplastics

Bioplastics are plastics derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oils, corn starch, or microbiota. Bioplastics can be made from agricultural by-products and also from used plastic bottles and other containers using microorganisms. Common plastics, such as fossil-fuel plastics are derived from petroleum or natural gas. Production of such plastics tends to require more fossil fuels and to produce more greenhouse gases than the production of biobased polymers (bioplastics). Some, but not all, bioplastics are designed to biodegrade. Biodegradable plastics can break down in either anaerobic or aerobic environments, depending on how they are manufactured. Bioplastics can be composed of starches, cellulose, biopolymers, and a variety of other materials.

Track 4: Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data. As an interdisciplinary field of science, bioinformatics combines computer science, statistics, mathematics, and engineering to analyze and interpret biological data. Bioinformatics has been used for in silico analyses of biological queries using mathematical and statistical techniques.

Track 5: Biopolymers as materials

Polymer Nano composites (PNC) are made of a polymers or copolymers having nanoparticles or Nano fillers dispersed in the polymer matrix. The plastic used for food packaging and non-food applications is non-biodegradable, and also of valuable and scarce non-renewable resources like petroleum. With the current research on exploring the alternatives to petrol and priority on reduced environmental impact, research is increased in development of biodegradable packaging from biopolymer-based materials. A biomaterial is a surface, or construct that interacts with biological systems. These biomaterials are about fifty years old. The study of such materials is called biomaterials science. It has been seen a strong growth over its past period, were many companies have been investing large amounts in the development of new products. Biomaterials science is the elements of medicine, biology, chemistry, tissue engineering and materials science. The Biomaterial market over the forecast period of 2012-2017 market for biomaterials is likely to predict to $44.0 billion in 2012 and is steady to grow at a CAGR of 15% from 2012 to 2017 to reach $88.4 billion by 2017.

Track 6: Green Composites in Biopolymers

The Green composites are the composite materials that are been made from both renewable resource based polymers (biopolymers) and biofiller. These green composites are recyclable, renewable, triggered biodegradable and could reduce the dependency of the fossil fuel to a great extent when used in interior applications. Green composites have major applications in automotive interiors, interior building applications and major packaging areas. Despite having large number of recent reviews on green composites it defined as biopolymers or bio-derived polymers reinforced with natural fibers for bioprocessing of these materials, limited investigation has taken place into the most appropriate applications for these materials. The Global composite materials industry reached $19.6B in 2011, making an annual increase of 8.2% from 2010. Market value of end use products made with composites was $55.6B in 2011. North American composites industry accelerated by 9 % in 2014, Europe increased by 8%while Asia grew by 7% in 2015. By 2017, composite materials industry is expected to reach $ 29.9B (7% CAGR) while end products made with composite materials market value is expected to reach $85B the Global Automotive composite materials market has estimated to be around $ 2.8 B in 2015, and forecast to reach $ 4.3 B by 2017 @ CAGR of approx. 7%.

Track 7: Biopolymers for Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering is the immense area of research in recent years because of its vast potential in the repair or replacement of impaired tissues and organs. The present research will focus on scaffolds as they are one of the three most important factors, including seed cells, growth hormones and scaffolds in tissue engineering. Among the polymers used in tissue engineering, polyhydroxy esters (such as PLA, PGA, and PLGA) have extensive attention for a variety of biomedical applications. Besides, PCL has been widely used as a tissue engineering scaffold. Scaffolds have been used for tissue engineering such as bone, cartilage, ligament, skin, vascular tissues, neural tissues, and skeletal muscle and as vehicle for the delivery of drugs, proteins, and DNA. The worldwide market for tissue engineering and regeneration products reached $55.9B in 2010, is expected to reach $59.8B by 2013, and will further grow to $89.7B by 2016 at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.4%.

Track 8: Biopolymers in Biomedical Applications

Biodegradable polymers have many uses in the biomedical field, that to in the fields of tissue engineering and drug delivery. In order for us to use biodegradable polymer as a therapeutic, it should undergo certain criteria: it should be non-toxic so that it could eliminate foreign body response; The time it takes for the polymers to degrade is proportional to the time required for therapy; The products resulting from biodegradation are not cytotoxic and are readily eliminated from the body; The material must be easily processed in order to tailor the mechanical properties for the required task; It should be easily sterilized; and it should have acceptable shelf life.

Track 9: Recycling & Waste Management of Biopolymers

Biobased polymers lead not only on the raw materials side but also on the other side through certain promising end-of-life (EOL) options. Exclusively waste disposal with energy recovery has an added advantage, which lies in benefiting carbon neutral energy while allowing multiple uses of possible recycling. The recent commission after research said that all of the composts contain biodegradable polymers materials could be classified using a risk assessment system at a higher toxicity position. Biodegradable polymers waste can serve for aerobic degradation, composting, or anaerobic digestion. When biopolymers are propagated or digested, their individual elements are recycled naturally in particular in their carbon and hydrogen content. The greater segment of the market, packaging, is expected to reach nearly 1.7 Billion Pounds in 2016. The world market in 2011 estimated at 656 Million Pounds, making the five-year CAGR 20.5%. The second-largest market segment, made up of fibers/fabrics is expected to increase in volume from an estimated 134 million pounds in 2011 to 435 million pounds in 2016, for a five-year CAGR of 26.6%.

Track 10: Biopolymers in Biofibers & Microbial Cellulose

Cellulose the most generous natural biopolymer on the earth, synthesized by plants, algae and also some species of bacteria and micro organisms. The Plant derivative cellulose and Black Carbon (BC) have the same chemical composition but differ in structure and physical properties. The BC network structure comprises cellulose Nano fibrils 3-8 nm in diameter, and the crystalline regions are been the normal cellulose I. The properties such as the Nano metric structure, unique physical and mechanical properties together produce higher purity that lead to great number of commercial products. Lignocellulosic agricultural byproducts are an extensive and cheap source for cellulose fibers. Agro-based biofibers have the architecture, properties and design that make them suitable for use as composite, textile, pulp and paper manufacture. In addition, biofibers can be used to produce biofuel, chemicals, enzymes and food. The global bio-fiber composites market reached $2.1Bil in 2010, with CAGR of 15% in last five years. Among them, the automotive and construction industry were the greater application segments. By 2016, this natural fiber composite market is expected to reach $ 3.8B (10% CAGR).

Track 11: Biopolymers Feed Stock Challenges & opportunities

Bio related products can restore petroleum-related products, new methodologies, where various types of lignocellulosic biomass experience bioprocessing to commercially important products, must be devised. A relatively low value lignocellulosic biomass that could be used to produce bio based co-products is grass. Currently, many grasses are largely took the advantage for cropping by livestock or harvested as hay. To exploit this opportunity, the feasibility of using microbial bioconversion for the production of chemicals and polysaccharide gums from the fermentable sugars present in hydrolysates of various grass species. The production of 2.5 g/l was obtained when the cells were grown on medium containing 70 mM sucrose and 0.2% (w/v) Casamino Acids. It enriched medium is maximum biopolymers production of up to 3.4 g/laws was obtained.

Track 12: Future & Scope of Biopolymers

Futures of Biopolymers demand the manufacturer for new materials is overwhelming. However the cost-effectiveness of the materials must progress as they are contributed specifically for sustainable development. Applications by the use of new materials should utilize the properties of these polymers, and the products should be developed based on those properties. They are onset to arrive as a result to be more responsible in taking care of the world we live in. Thus, the recent development for the bio-based products rather than petroleum or natural gas based products. The use of biopolymers could markedly increase as more reliable form for the development and the cost to manufacture these bioplastics continues to go fall. Bioplastics can be replaced with conventional plastics in the field of application which can be used in various categories such as food packaging, plastic plates, cups, cutlery, plastic storage bags, storage containers or other plastic or composite materials items you are buying and therefore can help in making environment sustainable. Bio-based polymers are adjacent to the conventional polymers than ever before. Now a day, biobased polymers are commonly found in various applications from commodity to hi-tech applications due to advance research development in biotechnology and public awareness.
