Former Biodegradable Plastics Society, Japan (BPS) has changed the name to Japan BioPlastics Association (JBPA) on 15th of June 2007.
Japan BioPlastics Association (JBPA) was established in 1989 Japan as the name of Biodegradable Plastics Society, Japan (BPS).
Since then, with more than 200 membership companies, JBPA has been making many efforts to promote the recognition and the business development of “Biodegradable Plastics” and “Biomass-based Plastics” in Japan.
JBPA keeps close cooperation basis with US (BPI), EU (European Bioplastics) , China (BMG) and Korea and continues the discussion with them about various technical items, such as the Analytical method to evaluate the biodegradability, the products specification, the recognition and labelling system etc. We think the close communication within Asian area is most important especially connected with the rapid development activity in these areas.
