The section on "Green for your health" from La Razon paper (Spain), dedicates a whole article on the production of biopolymers in Europe.

"In 2016 the production of biopolymers in Europe will double. Our country will not be the leader in production, but it has an excellent position in research projects. Packaging and other products made with garlic, almond shell, wheat straw, paper or waste recycling industries juices are just some of the initiatives.

STRAW AND RECYCLED PAPER

One of them, the most recent, is Innobite, which just started just three weeks ago.
