By developing plant-based materials, we contribute simultaneously
to valorizing natural resources, reducing GHG emissions,
and building local and circular value-chains.
Plant-based plastics and resins, at the centre of a triple challenge...
Climate change: plant-based plastics and resins make it possible to avoid using oil to produce materials. Moreover, once created, these materials store CO2 taken from the atmosphere by plants. A double benefit!
The circularity of materials and regional loops: Based on renewable raw materials and distributed worldwide, bio-sourced plastics allow local value chains to emerge, eliminating long-distance transport, relocating jobs, and valorizing local resources that may be residual.
Solutions to emerge: Through the mobilization of R&D skills and resources and the mobilization of the players in the sector
The ecological transition must allow bio-based and renewable resources to replace depleted resources. To that end, solutions must combine decarbonization, competitiveness, use efficiency.
CLIMICALS is focused on these challenges.
