- RNR 4043: Section 1 - Introduction to Renewable Biomaterials
Classification, properties and utilization of renewable biomaterials derived from sustainable resources, including forest, agriculture, and organic-based materials.
Renewable resource derived from forest, agriculture, and organic-based materials has attracted significant attention as a sustainable alternative to petrochemicals for large-scale production of renewable bioproducts including materials, chemicals and fuels. The development has created a strong interest in understanding the nature, performance properties, and environmental benefits of the bio-based renewable materials.(Left) From: Forest Products Journal 56(5)4-10.
