Alternative raw materials but also completely new applications are conceivable, for example in combination with bioplastics.
Bio plastics are plastics based on natural materials such as starch, cellulose, lactic acid or proteins. These biobased materials are sometimes also biodegradable and compostable. Worldwide, there have been several developments in the field of bioplastics. Existing plastics can be (partially) made from renewable materials, but also completely new plastics based on renewable raw materials are produced on an increasing scale. Ten years ago, production volumes were still small. Today, bio plastics form a substantial part of the market and this will continue to grow.
