Products from Renewable Biomass
Waste biomass is a significant burden on a number of industries especially in food and forestry. It is also is a missed opportunity to develop new products. Australia has a vast amount of waste biomass and under-utilised materials, from marine, agricultural and food sources. To decrease our environmental input and to improve the economic utilisation of Australia’s natural resources it is important to create value from these materials. Products, including fine chemicals, nutritional ingredients, cosmetic ingredients and industrially useful polymers can be recovered from this renewable biomass.
