  • Overview ofNext-Generation Bioplastics June 28,2011
  • Topics Bioplastics status today. Projected growth rates and trends. Key emerging technologies/players. Conclusions.
  • Projected Bioplastics Trends Bioplastic capacity is still only 1%of the approximately 230 million tons of plastics in use today. Projected Growth rates range from 20-40% per year.
  • Projected Durable Bioplastics Growth Increasing demand for biobased, durable productsin packaging, electronics and automotive applications. In 2011, durables are expected to account for almost 40% of bioplastics, compared with 12% in 2010. (European Bioplastics)
  • How Will This Change to Durables Occur? Existing players improving their performance. Continuing advances in existing and/or new monomers/polymers from renewable resources. Rapid development of fermentation, catalysts and biomass conversion technologies to enable monomer economics and biomass feedstocks. Drop in replacements of existing petro-based monomers will be first to market.
  • Bio “Building Blocks”Ethylene/ethylene glycol Braskem, India Glycols. TPA Gevo, Anellotech, Draths, Genomatica, UOP, Global Bioenergies, Sabic, Virent,Chemtex.
