While there has been significant interest in bio-based polymers, commercializing these materials – for drop-in, near-drop-in, and substitute polymers – remains challenging. Despite growing consumer demand for renewable products, sustained low oil prices have made competing with petroleum-based incumbents difficult. Although newer biopolymers have promising performance and end-of-life attributes, additional considerations must be made to bring these materials to market. To help stakeholders formulate successful biopolymer strategies, the present report overviews recent activity in the space, evaluating partnerships, research and development activities, and efforts to scale production.
