Global Bio- and CO2- based Plastics and Polymers Market Report 2023 with Profiles of 492 Companies and their Production Capacities & 30 Companies in CO2-dervied Polymer and Plastics Products Producers


Dublin, March 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Bio- and CO2- based Plastics and Polymers" report has been added to's offering.

Bio-based polymers are sustainable polymers synthesized from renewable resources such as biomass (e.g. plant waste, algae) rather than conventional petroleum feedstocks such as oil and gas. They offer significant advantages over traditional plastic

CO2 demonstrates the potential to be a renewable and inexhaustible platform chemical for the synthesis of commodities (methanol, urea, (in)organic carbonates, formic acid), fuel (methane, alcanes) and polymers. R&D is progressing to produce polymers and high-value chemicals utilising CO2 as a feedstock.

The technology transforms CO2 into polycarbonates such as polypropylene carbonate (PPC) and polyethylene carbonate (PEC) using catalysts in a reaction with an epoxide, a chemical compound used as a reagent.

A number of companies are currently operating polymer plants using CO2 as a raw material. For the production of polymers, the utilization potential of CO2 is estimated to be 10 to 50 Mt yr - 1 in 2050.

Polymers and plastics generated utilising CO2 include:

  • Polymers incorporating CO2 directly into their structure, such as polycarbonates.
  • Polymers formed from monomers created by the hydrogenation of CO2, such as ethylene and propylene.
