Apply for the Innovation Award “Bio-based Material of the Year 2019”

The innovation award “Bio-based Material of the Year” award will once again be given to novel, innovative and trendsetting bio-based materials and products. Through the award, the nova-Institute and InfraServ Knapsack spotlight new bio-based materials, launched in 2018 or to be launched in 2019. The deadline for submission is 28 February.

The innovation award is part of the 12th International Conference on Bio-based Materials in Cologne, 15-16 May 2019, which the CSCP supports as a media partner. The Conference is an established meeting point for companies working in the field of bio-based chemicals and materials.

Among the applicants, six candidates will be nominated for the award by an independent expert jury, and will then get the opportunity to hold a ten-minute presentation at the conference. The participants of the conference will elect the final winner of the innovation award.

This is a unique opportunity to promote new bio-based materials and products. Last year, the granulate PLA reinforced with a degradable glass fibre from the Finnish company Arctic Biomaterials Oy won the “Bio-based Material of the Year 2018” award. Tomi Kangas, Sales and Marketing says: “The bio-based material of the year award has definitely been of great value to our company. In several cases where customers and co-operation partners have contacted us they have referred to this award as the trigger to look for information about our company and products. We have also been contacted from areas outside our normal reach due to the wide press coverage the award exposed us to.”

Other winners are similarly enthusiastic. If you want to join their ranks, find out more about the innovation award and complete the online application form:
