Bio-based and CO2-based Solutions
The only way for chemicals and plastics to become sustainable, climate-friendly and part of the circular economy is the complete substitution of fossil carbon with renewable carbon from alternative sources: biomass, CO2 and recycling. Sold out PLA in 2019 has led to the installation of increased capacities in 2020, PE and PP made from bio-based naphtha are breaking ground and future expansion for bio-based polyamides will come into place, growth for bio-based polymers is expected to be at 8 % until 2025. Additionally, the use of CO2 as chemical feedstock for polymers has been intensively diversified. Besides the long-established use of CO2 for the synthesis of polycarbonates, also polyurethanes can already be based on it. Optimised technology approaches in fermentation, electrochemistry and catalysts for conversion are emerging and broaden the CO2-based polymer portfolio.

The nova-Institute invites to the nova Session “Renewable Polymers: Production and Trends 2020-2025” on 17 February, 2021 and will take place as online event via zoom.
The workshop will focus on the market report “Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers – Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2020-2025” and the trend report “Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as Chemical Feedstock for Polymers – Technologies, Polymers, Developers and Producers”, published in January 2021 (please find the short version and preview under www.renewable-carbon.eu/publications).
The final agenda – overview:
- Michael Carus, nova-Institut (DE): Market Overview on Renewable Building Blocks and Polymers, EU Plastic Strategy and the Renewable Carbon Initiative (RCI) and Renewable Naphtha and Renewable Polymers based on it
- Pia Skoczinski and Raj Chinthapalli, nova-Institut (DE): Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers – Deep dive
