Biopolymers offer sustainable, carbon neutral and renewable materials to replace fossil-based plastics. VTT has deep scientific knowledge and state-of-the-art facilities from lab to pilot scale to research and develop biopolymers and bioplastics solutions.

Key facts

Biopolymers are made from nature-based materials, either by using natural polymers such as cellulose or by polymerising bio-based monomers.

What are biopolymers used for? With biopolymers we can help you to find sustainable alternatives to replace oil-based products. Our end-of-lifetime solutions include recyclable, compostable, biodegradable options.

Our facilities and top biopolymer researchers support you in finding solutions from monomers through polymers to the final applications.
