Bio-composites and biopolymer foams


Biocomposites and biopolymer foam-structures are replacing fossil fuel-derived materials in packaging, transportation, construction and consumer appliances. They are lightweight, save on raw materials and sustainable.

Stakeholders are demanding alternatives to fossil fuel-based products. In addition to increased sustainability, we are discovering the novel properties of many biocomposites and the business opportunities that come with them.
