Biological Polyesters

22–28 August 2004, Beijing, China

China is now the second largest oil consuming country in the world. Sustainable development based on renewable resources is now the only realistic choice for China, but also for the rest of the world. Increasingly, renewable resources are attracting the attention of researchers and governments around the world. The growing field of biological polyesters is showing great promise in developing renewable materials that are not made from petroleum. In recent years, companies have invested heavily in this type of research and there is now a good deal of accumulated knowledge about the production and marketing of biological materials.

The International Symposium on Biological Polyesters, to be held 22–28 August 2004 in Beijing, China, will send a strong message to governments and societies around the world: biological polyesters could have a major positive impact on the environment and stimulate a bio-industrial revolution in materials science. Participants of ISBP2004 can and will contribute to the understanding of this interesting material. They can also contribute to the “Green Olympics and High-Tech Olympics” concept of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games.
