General information



The members of the organizing committee are delighted to welcome you all to the bi-annual European Symposium on Biopolymers (ESBP) which will be held during July 5 -7, 2017 Toulouse, France.

Increasing environmental awareness is prompting researchers and industrialists to develop innovative strategies for environmental sustainability by using processes and materials with low energy consumption, low environmental impact and toxicity, together with low cost and for some cases high biodegradability.

ESBP will focus on recent developments in the area of biopolymer production, characterization and processing but also on the numerous applications of biopolymeric materials in a variety of fields, including medicine and medical devices, smart materials, coatings, personal care products, structural materials, agro food and agriculture, and many other areas.

The main spotlight of ESBP will be on Biopolymers like polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), cellulose, alginates, cyanophicin, polyisoprene, etc.


Further, ESBP-2017 aims to:

  • Gather delegates from companies and from diverse scientific and academic settings to participate in critical debates;

  • Facilitate sharing and collaboration between specialists from different backgrounds;

  • Evaluate the current and future situation of biopolymers markets;

  • Measure advancements relating to industrialization of production chains.
