Renewable and Sustainable Polymers

Sustainable polymers from renewable resources can be obtained through chemical modification of natural polymers, such as starch, cellulose, or chitin. Renewable resources are used increasingly in the production of polymers. In particular, monomers such as carbon dioxide, terpenes, vegetable oils and carbohydrates can be used as feedstocks for the manufacture of a variety of sustainable materials and products, including elastomers, plastics, hydrogels, flexible electronics, resins, engineering polymers and composites.
