Plastics are THE most widely used materials for toys and many products for leisure. Plastics still rank ahead of wood, cardboard and textiles (including plush), which ultimately also very often consist of synthetic fibres. Plastics for toys should therefore be as healthy and sustainable as possible - because our children play every day. The first responsible manufacturers of plastic toys are therefore switching to plastics made from bio-based materials, which are made from renewable raw materials.

The burning questions in this respect are: How to create and accelerate this change? How to secure the goals and claims? 

That's why the leading trade publication bioplastics MAGAZINE together with narocon (Harald Kaeb) and supported by  the German Toy Manfacturer Association DVSI are now inviting businesses and media to the first bio!TOY conference.

More than 20 presentations with focus on suitable materials, application examples and user experiences. In addition experts will give background information on regulations, policy and funding opportunities. The conference will be accompanied by a table-top exhibition of business and technology leaders.

bio!TOY is a 1.5-day conference and will be held on
27 and 28 March 2019, in Nuremberg, Germany.

“The biobased plastics industry can supply polymers and compounds that offer functionality and sustainability benefits, such as low CO2 emissions. Applications will represent what the #NewPlasticsEconomy is all about: Circular, safe products made from renewable resources. To maintain a great quality of life for our children,” says Dr. Harald Kaeb, expert for biobased chemistry, founder of narocon InnovationConsulting and co-organozer of bio!TOY

“The toy industry is looking for more sustainable materials for the manufacture of its products and packaging. We are exploring the opportunities that novel, biobased plastics can offer. The conference will help our members and anyone in charge to learn, create visions and goals, and establish collaboration along the value chain,” says Ulrich Brobeil, Managing Director, German Toy Maker Association DVSI.
