Key Strategies for Valorizing Sustainable Materials Innovation

March 23, 2018 | State of the Market Report

With recent announcements for increased usage of sustainable materials, consumer-facing companies are driving interest in new, scalable sustainable materials. However, development has historically been difficult, with commercialization relegated to niche markets because of high material costs, poor performance, and low capacities. As such, there is a critical need to develop sustainable materials and products that can be used at scale. In this report, we identify three emerging trends for sustainable materials innovation: waste feedstocks, performance as sustainability, and digital enablement. For each of these trends, the following slides spell out their environmental sustainability and economic value and highlight key opportunities.
