The R&D challenge

Companies exploring bioplastics and sustainable materials need rapid upskilling to make the most of this transition. Challenges include:

  • The limited availability and sustainable sourcing for biomass feedstocks and bioplastics, which makes the process expensive

  • Regulatory barriers to the widespread adoption, production and distribution of bioplastics, such as a lack of harmonized standards and certifications.

  • The development of efficient technologies for converting biomass feedstock into sustainable plastics requires industrial fermentation, extraction of sugars from plants, polymerization of monomers and more.
