Plastics from Renewable Sources

With increasing global warming, declining fossil fuel reserves, and increasing population worldwide, there has been an intense effort to expand our energy portfolio from renewable sources, like wind, hydro, solar, and biomass. Among these, biomass is the only carbon based renewable energy source and as such, is ideal for production of fuels and chemicals. With the Department of Energy (DOE) projecting replacement of 1/3 of fuels and ¼ of all organic chemicals in the next few years from biomass, intense efforts have been devoted to converting lignocellulosic biomass, such as trees, switchgrass, and waste into intermediate platforms that can be fed to the refinery and chemicals industry.
