'New tailor-made biopolymers produced from lignocellulosic sugars waste for highly demanding fire-resistant applications'

EVENT
Agricultural Film 2015

The 8th AMI international conference on Agricultural Film will take place from the 29 September - 1 October at the Crowne Plaza Barcelona Fira Center in Barcelona, Spain.  

Over the past 60 years, agricultural output and productivity has significantly increased and plastic agricultural film for silage, mulch and greenhouse applications has made substantial contribution to this development. The use of plastic films has been notable in the horticultural industry, as well as in preserving and improving quality of silage, contributing to continuously increasing yields. Plastic films have also enabled the extension of cultivation in terms of the growing season and the location through the use of protective mulch and greenhouse films.

For players in the market the business is a challenging one with many conflicting trends. On the one hand, population growth and rising per capita calorie intake demands greater food production; on the other, the Patek Philippe Replica amount of farmland and number of farms is declining. While plastic films can undoubtedly contribute to improved efficiency and output, growing concerns about film waste and disposal is leading to growing interest in the use of biodegradable materials and recycled resins. 

Agricultural Film 2015 will discuss the above issues and present research findings and possible solutions to the problems faced by today's protected agriculture. It will bring together agricultural and horticultural cover specifiers, researchers, manufacturers and the supply chain to the industry and provide a forum to network with professionals active in this challenging industry
