Field of innovation: Bio-based plastics

Bio-based are either produced from renewable resources and/or biologically degradable.


There are two types of polymers, which are labelled as bio-based plastics. Either the molecules of the plastic are gained from organic (yet renewable) raw materials, which are then processed into a polymer. Or the plastic is biologically recyclable (independent of the origin of the material).
