Abstract

The anticipated diminution of fossil fuel reserves dictates the need for the utilisation of biobased resources for various applications. Until 1970 various industries have utilised biobased resources for the manufacture of a wide range of products from dyes to synthetic fibers. The replacement of petroleum derived materials by biorenewable resources and its enhanced uses have created a demand in the market. Due to increased demand and the anticipated diminution of petroleum derived materials, biorenewable resources are expected to be a major contributor for the production of industrial products. Currently various attempts have been in progress to develop the technology to reduce the costs and to improve the performance of biobased products. In the meantime, the environmental concerns are intensifying the interest in agricultural and forestry resources as alternative feedstock. The steady and sustained growth of these industries depend on the development of new markets. A potential new market for these materials is food packaging, a highly competitive area with great demands for performance and cost.
