3 3 European Bioplastics: 20 years of bioplastic experience European Bioplastics represents the bioplastics industry in Europe. " Its members are companies from the agricultural feedstock, chemical and plastic industries, as well as industrial users and recycling companies."

4 4 European Bioplastics definition of bioplastics BIOPLASTICS! are! biobased! e.g. bio-pe biodegradable e.g. PBAT or both e.g. starch blends

5 5 Environmental benefits of bioplastics The use of renewable resources to produce bioplastics is the key for:" Increasing resource efficiency:! > resources can be (at least) annually cultivated;" > principle of cascade use, (biomass first, then energy generation)" A reduction of the carbon footprint and GHG emissions" Saving fossil resources, and for substituting them step by step" Efficient Waste management:! > Biodegradable plastics offer an additional end-oflife solution (composting); " > non-biodegradable plastics can be recycled or used for energy recovery"

6 6 t 6 Mio 5 Mio 4 Mio 3 Mio 2 Mio 1 Mio The global bioplastics production capacity is set to grow by % * Source: Market data by nova-institut, Institute for Bioplastics and Biocomposites University of Applied Science and Arts Hannover (Germany), and European Bioplastics, November2014

7 Production capacities to quadruple between

8 Production capacities breakdown by material type

9 Bioplastic material present in a multitude of applications 9

10 Growing yes but no competition to food and feed! 10

11 11 Regional development of bioplastic production capacities

12 12 10 years of European bioeconomy 2004 OECD Committee for scientific and technological policy publication Biotechnology for Sustainable Growth and Development mentions notion of a biobased economy for the first time on an international level" 2005 concept of Knowledge-based BioEconomy (KBBE) as a new element of the 7 th Framework Programme; first bioeonomy conference in Brussels " 2006 notion of biorefineries introduced in EU policy agenda Industrial or white biotechnology " 2007 Lead Market Initiative (LMI) for Europe adopted by the EU Commission; 6 promising market sectors chosen that could scale up through a number of demand side policies, bio-based products being one of them" years of KBBE first stakeholder venue in Brussels; several Member States publish national Bioeconomy R&D strategies (Germany, Benelux, Scandinavian countries)" 2011 A resource-efficient Europe - Flagship initiative under the Europe 2020 Strategy " 2012 Strategy for Innovating for sustainable Growth: A Bioeconomy for Europe ; Communication from the EU Commission"

13 13 10 years of European bioeconomy Legal framework waste & packaging" > 2013 Green Paper on Waste Strategy" > Proposal DG Environment re. reduction of lightweight plastic bags, revision of PPWD" > 2014 Waste Fitness Check / Waste Targets Review; withdrawn by new Commissionin March 2015; draft of new comprehensive Circular Economy Package proposal ongoing" "

14 14 Unlocking bioplastics economic & ecologic potential! Introduce provisions that stipulate the bioeconomy and support the use of responsibly sourced renewable raw materials" Indicative targets for the use of renewable raw materials in packaging" GPP legislation could include criteria regarding the biobased content of a product. " A EU-wide Eco-label considering biobased content of products " Level playing field for the bio-industries with regard to access to renewable raw materials" A mandatory separate biowaste collection by 2020 " Baning of mechanically and organically recyclable waste from landfills by 2020" " FOCUS: Bioeconomy FOCUS: Biobased feedstock FOCUS: Waste legislation

15 15 Employment growth potential - high-skilled jobs for Europe Satus quo 2013: 8,000 jobs in the EU! > About 280,000 tonnes production capacities (17% of global capacities)" > Land-use at less than 0.002% (100,000 ha) of global agricultural area " > No specific legal framework in the EU to support bioplastics!" Potential in 2025: 160,000 jobs in the EU! > 5,7m tonnes production capacities (10% of general plastics production, EU, 2013)" > Renewable feedstock are chosen according to efficiency criteria" > Biobased plastics have contributed to reaching the EUʼs 2020 GHG-reduction targets" > Biodegradable/compostable plastics support efficient waste management.
