Technology Commercialisation in Entrepreneurial Bioplastics Ventures

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


The excessive use of single-use plastics such as face masks, gloves and personal protective equipment during Covid pandemic has significantly altered the dynamics of our green transition and changed priorities. Therefore eco-friendly alternatives like bio-based plastics would be vital to deal with future pandemics. The demand for bioplastics is expected to gradually increase to avoid the utilization of single-use plastics, providing new and emerging bioplastics ventures with significant growth opportunities in the coming years. But significant challenges remain in the scale-up of these entrepreneurial ventures so long as fossil derived plastics are available at an ecologically unjustifiable price and large incumbents maintain the status-quo.
