  • Further growth for bioplastics

    Polylactic acids, starch blends, cellulose, and other bioplastics achieve significantly higher growth rates than conventional standard plastics made of mineral oils or natural gases. „Bioplastics can be used in a growing number of application areas,“ explains Oliver Kutsch, CEO of market research in more

  • A "switch" to increase starch accumulation in algae

    Results from a collaborative study by Tokyo Tech and Tohoku University, Japan, raise prospects for large-scale production of algae-derived starch, a valuable bioresource for biofuels and other renewable materials. Such bio-based products have the potential to replace fossil fuels and contribute to t more

  • Paints and varnishes based on potato starch

    If a surface has to be protected against corrosion, in 80 percent of all cases this takes place through coating it with paints or varnishes.
