INBAR will take part in the 2021 China International Service Trade Fair and host a seminar on the theme: ‘Replacing Plastics with Bamboo’. INBAR will also co-host a booth in the exhibition area. INBAR’s presence at the Fair is supported by Ningbo Shilin Arts & Crafts Co., Ltd., China Tanboocel Union and Hunan Yinsun Bamboo Industry Crafts Co., Ltd., three leading Chinese bamboo enterprises. Together, they aim to promote bamboo as a biobased, low-carbon alternative to plastic products, from single-use plastics to durable materials like PVC.

On 6 September, INBAR will host an international seminar on ‘Replacing Plastics with Bamboo’. In this seminar, policymakers, industry experts and researchers will share knowledge and experience about the latest bamboo materials, and their potential as plastic substitutes. Speakers will focus in particular on bamboo products’ potential to contribute to climate goals in China and beyond, including plastic restrictions and the goal to reach ‘carbon neutrality’ by 2060.
