Cereplast, Inc. (NASDAQ:CERP), a leading manufacturer of proprietary bio-based, compostable and sustainable plastics, announced today that its Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Robert Findlen, will deliver a featured presentation at IntertechPira's 2010 Biopolymers Symposium to be held on October 11 through 13, 2010 at The Westin Tabor Center in Denver, Colorado. The presentation topic will cover the economic and environmental benefits of bioplastics versus traditional, petroleum-based plastics.

Cereplast is also a main sponsor of the fifth annual Biopolymers Symposium, which brings together leaders in the biopolymer industry to discuss the variety of moving parts affecting the global market in terms of policy, regulation, labeling, end of life management and product performance.

"We are proud to sponsor the 2010 Biopolymers Symposium as we remain strongly committed to supporting the industry's collaborative effort to forge development and growth forward in the bioplastics space," said Frederic Scheer, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Cereplast, Inc. "As demand for bio-plastics as an alternative to petroleum-based plastics continues to grow exponentially, Cereplast continues to design and produce economically and ecologically responsible products from renewable resources."

Cereplast, Inc. actively manufactures proprietary bioplastic resins for use in products including tableware, cutlery, toys, healthcare and hygiene products, bottles and containers, bags, packaging, gift cards, printed displays, straws, pipes, conduits, and many other applications. The Company's advance technologies include: Cereplast Compostables(R), which substitutes petroleum-based plastics in single-use disposables and packaging; and Cereplast Sustainables(TM), which replaces up to 70% of the petroleum content in conventional plastics used in a range of markets, including automotive, consumer goods, consumer electronics, medical, packaging, and construction.

During the conference presentation, Robert Findlen will describe the various Cereplast technology platforms being commercialized and developed which include PLA, Starch, Polyolefins and new polymers such as PHA, PHBV, Succinic Acid, among others. Cereplast is on track to reach the goals the Company outlined earlier this year "and we are vigorously structuring our sales and technical team to respond efficiently to surging consumer and industrial demand for economically and ecologically sound, 'green' products," said Robert Findlen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Cereplast.
