Technology for sustainability: Bio-based materials

Bio-based materials are made from organic substances found in living organisms, such as seaweed or algae. While many of these materials are biodegradable, it is not always the case. A variety of materials are produced using bio-based inputs, including bioplastics and mycelium-based materials.

These innovative solutions offer a renewable source of raw materials, typically with a lower environmental impact, and are capable of being used across multiple lifecycles. They are mostly used in packaging.
