Renewal from Biomaterials
In the near future, bio-packaging materials will challenge fossil-based plastics in many areas, and will replace traditional plastics in some. Bio-based materials are also starting to replace fossil fuel-derived materials in transportation, construction and consumer appliances. Biopolymers, nanocellulose, bio-composites, natural and man-made fibres and foam technologies will play a significant role in an increasing number of applications. They are lightweight, sustainable and save on raw materials.
