Biomaterials like bioplastics and other bio-based materials seem to be a perfect alternative to artificial industrial materials that have conquered our lives in the last 50 years. We urgently need alternatives to petroleum-based plastics, cement and fossil fuels, which are known for their negative impact on our daily lives and climate. Biomaterials could offer new opportunities in the construction sector, in the textile industry, in agriculture and even in the energy sector. Healthier, safer and more sustainable! – True or false promise?
