4.1.1 Introduction

Course subject(s) Module 4. Biobased products: Sustainable biopolymers

Welcome to the fourth module on a sustainable bioeconomy! After completion of this module, you will understand the principles of biopolymers and know what important role biopolymers could play in creating a sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient and competitive economy: a bioeconomy. Furthermore, you will be able to identify the fundamental differences between the various biopolymers and to explain the production possibilities of biopolymers, including the used starting materials and the possible fields of application. Finally, you will be able to evaluate new developments in the area of biopolymers and at least to a certain extent assess what exciting possibilities are still open.
