This book serves as an up-to-date, broad, but concise overview of basic and applied aspects of bio-based plastics, focusing primarily on thermoplastic polymers for material use. Chapters focus on specific classes of bio-based plastics such as polysaccharides, polyesters, polyamides, and polyolefines. Each chapter presents principles of the materials structure, sources, (bio-)synthesis, production and processing, chemical and/or biotechnological modification, as well as present and future applications of the material. The result is a reference for a diverse audience including advanced students and industrialists from a variety of backgrounds.

Part of the Renewable Resources series, and written by experts in this field, this book is suitable for advanced students as well as professionals in industry and academia.

Keywords: Biopolymers, polysaccharides, polyesters, polyamides, polyolefines, biosynthesis, biotechnological modification, renewable resources, renewable materials, sustainable plastics, renewable plastics, non oil based plastics
