Polymers from Renewable Resources covers both the development of renewable polymers and their use in the production of industrial, consumer, and medical products.
Subjects covered in this journal include biopolymers, environmental impact, life cycle analysis, materials selection, plastics processing, product development, production processes, end of life strategies, synthesis, characterization and properties of materials prepared using renewable resources.
The renewable polymer industry is growing rapidly as it is attractive to both industry and consumers, they help:
- reduce carbon emissions,
- reduce landfill due to biodegradability and are combustible,
- lessen dependence on oil.
The Editor, Professor Karlsson says “Polymers from Renewable Resources is the place for publishing all the exciting new research and development that strives to make tomorrow’s sustainable polymeric materials by the replacement of fossil based resources with renewable ones”.
