Sustainable Today: biopolymers

Sustainable materials in Brandenburg

The manufacturing sector is increasingly focusing on the use of alternative raw materials. Biopolymers can be produced from regional agricultural waste and can thereby reduce emissions and shorten transport routes, improve environmental footprints and create jobs. In addition to these social and ecological advantages, they also open up business opportunities: this means that the production or the use of biopolymers can effectively contribute to improving a company’s image, to attracting new target groups and to providing a decisive competitive advantage.

In order to make these advantages more tangible, the Cluster Plastics and Chemistry Brandenburg has launched a campaign focusing on this material of the future which is already available today. For more information on the biopolymers’ current status and their prospects, please refer directly to the experts’ videos and to the whitepaper on biopolymers.

Prof. Alexander Böker, Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP: “One vision with regard to biopolymers would in fact be that of eventually doing completely without petroleum for the production of polymers.”

Wie könnte die Politik Biopolymere stärken?

How could politicians support biopolymers?

Joachim Venus, Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy Potsdam: “When it comes to economic framework conditions, we often refer to America and its so-called ‘Buyer-Preferred-Program’.”
