Rapid progress in biomanufacturing is one of the drivers of this fast-growing trend. This new frontier in material science allows for the production of biobased products starting from very specific raw materials. These include micro algae, seaweed, cellulose fiber, agriculture byproducts, and any other natural ingredients. Production can go far beyond natural materials that have been known for millennia such as natural textiles, leather, wood and paper, which all derive from animals and plants. The session will explore some of the future development and push the limit of these frontiers.
