Journal of Biobased Materials and Bioenergy covers all aspects of fundamental and applied research related to bioderived/biobased materials and bioenergy, including their applications in all fields of science, engineering and life sciences. Environmental and economic factors are driving for the greater use of biobased feedstocks and chemicals in our daily life. Many leading companies across the world have ambitious plans for using biobased materials, biofuels and related processing technologies. Biobased materials have a wide range of applications in packaging, consumer goods, electronics, transportation, construction, green technologies and many other fields.
