Bio-based polymers are sustainable polymers synthesized from renewable sources corresponding to biomass (e.g. plant waste, algae) relatively than standard petroleum feedstocks corresponding to oil and fuel. They provide vital benefits over conventional plastic 

CO2 demonstrates the potential to be a renewable and inexhaustible platform chemical for the synthesis of commodities (methanol, urea, (in)natural carbonates, formic acid), gas (methane, alcanes) and polymers. R&D is progressing to supply polymers and high-value chemical substances utilising CO2 as a feedstock. The know-how transforms CO2 into polycarbonates corresponding to polypropylene carbonate (PPC) and polyethylene carbonate (PEC) utilizing catalysts in a response with an epoxide, a chemical compound used as a reagent. Polymers and plastics generated utilising CO2 embody:

  1. Polymers incorporating CO2 straight into their construction, corresponding to polycarbonates.
  2. Polymers fashioned from monomers created by the hydrogenation of CO2, corresponding to ethylene and propylene.

A lot of corporations are at present working polymer vegetation utilizing CO2 as a uncooked materials. For the manufacturing of polymers, the utilization potential of CO2 is estimated to be 10 to 50 Mt yr−1 in 2050.
