The following Panorama contains a detailed overview of the Scientific Expertise on Bioplastic, in North America.



Sustainable development is one of the major challenges of our century at a political, economic, environmental and societal level. The depletion of natural resources, fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) and the destruction of ecosystems (fauna, flora, water, air and soil) force the industrial companies to develop their processes, adapt to new regulations, and look for substitute products.
The search for a circular economy, in contradiction with the linear model: "take, make, dispose", has as objectives to reintegrate nutrients into the biosphere (biological nutrients) or to reuse them without producing pollutants (technical nutrients) .The bio-plastics cycle presents a real alternative to close-loop recycling starting and ending with the ground.
Bio-plastics are made from organic elements, creating a simple recycling process. These plastics, derived from plant matter, refer to two types of materials: firstly the agro-plastics from renewable resources, starch extracts from cereals (wheat, maize), glucose, vegetable oil (sugar cane, castor oil) and potatoes; and secondly the biodegradable plastics obtained by incorporating various compounds in a resin, often the result of petrochemical reactions.
Bio-plastics present solutions to waste management thanks to their biodegradable characteristics (compostable). They also present economic advantages (fewer steps in the industrial recycling processes), and help to limit the use of fossil fuels. Experts are now talking about the second generation of bio-plastics and are working on creating bio-plastics from non-food resources.



Featuring 20 companies’ profiles such as The Coca-Cola Company and Colgate-Palmolive Company, and 25 R&D Laboratories such as the Department of Plant Agriculture of University of Guelph, or the School of Packaging of the Michigan State University, this report is ideal for anyone wanting:



- Identify R&D Partners,



- Obtain IP & Technologic Intelligence,



- Develop your R&D Partnerships,



- And also benchmark competitors.



…all on a global scale.



You will also find 40 expert’s profiles, containing their scientific works and details of their field of expertise.



These Key Innovation Leaders are based in North America (USA, Canada…).





For each of them, you will receive a scientific profile updated at time of order, a selection of focused works and a presentation of their collaborative partners, as well as an in-depth explanation of why companies such as The Coca-Cola Company are leaders on Bioplastic.





A Panorama is composed of:

- A global overview of the subject (issues, distribution of sources of expertise, international networks, main standards...)

- A selection of scientific profiles of actors (research centers , companies, experts)

- A selection of targeted works (from 50 different types of scientific and technical documents from more than 250 data sources).



Here are some examples of our data sources:



Research institutes databases (NASA, MIT, Fraunhofer, ...)



Patent Databases (European Patent Office, USPTO, ...)



Thematic Databases (MedLine/PubMed, INRA, ...)



Project Databases (Cordis FP-7, FP-6, ...)



Panorama are generated and updated with the unique mapping technology developed by Expernova, which covers 52 countries. Expernova data base is constantly growing, so each Panorama updated at any given time is potentially different from the others Panorama generated at other times on the same subject.
