Costs PDF Print E-mail

How are the cost structure and competitiveness of bioplastics ?

The situation for bioplastics is typical for innovations:

  1. High research and development costs
  2. High production costs caused by small scale production
  3. Optimisation potential of production facilities not exploited to the full
  4. Considerable price differential to conventional commodity products
