Bio-based resources

Bio-based materials are those that are partially, or entirely made of biomass. The key element is that the carbon with which is used in the manufacturing process is derived from a renewable, biological process. Biomass can be used to create a range of material inputs, such as biopolymers, biofuels and bio-based chemicals.

Note: Bio-based materials are not the same as biodegradable, compostable, or renewable resources.
