In the Biobased Performance Materials (BPM) research programme, companies and knowledge institutes from across the value chain are working together in developing high-quality materials based on biomass; materials that are being increasingly applied in practice. The research focuses on two types of materials: polymers produced by plants, and polymers from biobased building blocks produced via biotechnology or chemical catalysis. The BPM programme is partly financed by the Dutch Top Sector Chemistry and is led by Wageningen University & Research Food & Biobased Research.
