Bio Materials: Tools & Resources to Accelerate Innovations

Our Definition of Bio Materials

Our definition of bio-based chemicals and materials is primarily linked to the European Union’s and   USDA


We refer to non-food and non-biofuel industrial products derived from biomass including :

  • plants,
  • algae,
  • crops,
  • trees,
  • marine organisms
  • and biological waste from households, animals and food production

This includes products that are fully or partially made of renewable resources. We are excluding natural products such as minerals, as they are not renewable.
