Cost competitiveness of sustainable bioplastic feedstocks – A Monte Carlo analysis for polylactic acid

25.01.2022 | Beiträge in referierten Zeitschriften | von Claudia Wellenreuther, André Wolf, Nils Zander

The production of plastics from biological resources is a promising option for decarbonizing plastic production and solving the plastic waste issue. The current practice of using food plants such as corn as feedstocks however entails sustainability issues related to agricultural land use. Alternative feedstocks in the form of by-products have been explored for some time...
