bio based

Bio-based materials offer an opportunity to develop new chemistries while helping the environment by sequestering CO2 in a useful form. The majority of polymeric materials have traditionally been made from oil, limiting the types of chemicals that can be produced and increasing the environmental costs of such materials. Bacteria and yeast offer opportunities to develop novel specialty and commodity chemicals through the modification of their genetics.

Biomass conversion offers novel chemicals and the opportunity to produce them at scale through innovative plants and processing techniques. These novel materials present opportunities for improving technology in many different markets. Whether you are a producer of novel bio-based materials looking to find uses for them or you are a materials manufacturer looking to produce greener products, 1st Source can help thanks to our extensive experience developing solutions and bringing novel bio-based materials to market.
