Biopolymers, the most promising of which is Polylactide (PLA), are a type of plastic which, instead of being manufactured from petrochemicals, are made from sustainable feedstock’s such as sugar, starch or Cellulose. Till date, the use of biopolymers, including first generation PLA, has been limited by their Physical properties and relatively high cost of manufacture. Next generation biopolymers, including Plastic component fabrication, Polysaccharides second generation PLA, are expected to be cheaper and to offer improved performance and a wider application reach, enabling them to capture an increasing share of the various markets for Biopolymers. Innovations has already achieved significant success with its early investments its £1.5m investment in obesity drug developer  return up to £22m, following its sale for£100m in 2013, while the sale of Respivert, a small molecule drug discovery company, resulted in Innovations realizing £9.5m, a 4.7 return on investment. In the year to2015, Innovations invested £14.0m in 20 ventures, helping to launch three new companies.

Biopolymers are polymers that occur in nature for example Carbohydrates and proteins.  Biopolymers are already being produced commercially on large scales, although they usually are not used for the production of plastics. Even if only a small percentage of the biopolymers already being produced were used in the production of plastics, it would significantly decrease our dependence on manufactured, non-renewable resources.

This session presents two main aspects of biopolymers; processing and product, The recent advance in converting natural polymers such as starch, protein, and cellulose for melt processing is briefly reviewed. The technical challenges for using natural polymers for thermoplastic applications and recent innovation in extrusion plasticization of starch enabling rapid expansion of starch for high valued polymer applications are summarized. Synthetic biopolyesters including polylactic acid (PLA), terpolymer of terephthalic acid, adipic acid, and butandiol (Ecoflex polymer), and polybutylene succinate (PBS) are also briefly reviewed and provided with a special focus on inherent properties relevant to fiber and nonwoven applications. Technical approaches are discussed to enable high performance biopolyester melt spun webs. The effects on crystallization kinetics of heterogeneous nucleation with various nucleating agents are explored by using Avrami model. Process modifications are discussed including heated quench and heated fiber draw to maximize fibrous web crystallinity. Some biopolymers such as starch, protein, algae, and spunbond PLA are selected for anaerobic biodegradation in order to understand how they behave in the waste disposal environment. The results indicate that starch can achieve a complete biodegradation within about one month timeframe, whereas protein and algae can achieve 62 to 70% biodegradation. PLA biodegradation in anaerobic conditions is highly affected by degrading temperatures relative to its glass transition temperature.

This session contain bio-catalyst and function.  The main function of catalysts is to speed up reactions without becoming a part of the reaction products. Enzymes, the biological catalysts are highly specific, catalyzing a single chemical reaction or a very few closely related reactions. The exact structure of an enzyme and its active site determines the specificity of the enzyme. Substrate molecules bind themselves at the enzyme's active site. Substrates initially bind to the enzymes by non-covalent interactions, including hydrogen bonds, ionic bonds and hydrophobic interactions. Enzymes lower the activation energy and the reactions proceed toward equilibrium more rapidly than the uncatalyzed reactions. Both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells commonly use allosteric regulation in responding to changes in conditions within the cells. Allosteric regulation can be positive or negative. Regulation by allosteric inhibitors is common in many biosynthetic pathways. A protective peptide in zymogens regulates by inactivating the protein.

 This session presents the strategy in building market. The important part of marketing is market mix and consists of the marketing 'tools' you are going to use. But marketing strategy is more than the marketing of mixed polymers and plastics. The marketing strategy sets your marketing goals, defines your target markets and describes how you will go about positioning the business to achieve advantage over your competitors. The marketing mix, which follows from your marketing strategy, is how you achieve that 'unique selling proposition' and deliver benefits to your customers.

When you have developed your marketing strategy, it is usually written down in a marketing plan. The plan usually goes further than the strategy, including detail such as budgets. You need to have a marketing strategy before you can write a marketing plan. Your marketing strategy may serve you well for a number of years but the details, such as budgets for marketing activities, of the marketing plan may need to be updated every year.
