2018 was a very good year for bio-based polymers: Several additional capacities were put into operation

The new market and trend report “Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers – Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2018-2023” from the German nova-Institute shows capacities and for the first time also production data for all bio-based polymers.

In 2018 the total production volume reached 7.5 million tonnes – these are already 2% of the production volume of petrochemical polymers. The potential is much higher, but is currently hampered by low oil prices and a lack of political support.
