Think Bio-Based Materials Are Costly, Perform Poorly? Think Again.

Think Bio-Based Materials Are Costly, Perform Poorly? Think Again.

A Lux Research report says not only do bio-based materials and chemicals perform as well as their petro-based counterparts, they can actually perform better than incumbents and offer real business value to companies.

Capacity of Emerging Bio-based Material, Chemicals Tech to Rise to 7.4M Metric Tons in 2018

The global capacity to produce bio-based materials and chemicals (BBMC) from emerging technologies will rise to over 7.4 million metric tons in 2018, more than tripling from 2008 levels, according to a new report from Lux Research. The US and Brazil will drive capacity growth. In North America, 17 BBMC facilities are … Read more »
