This report analyzes the development in the production of sustainable natural rubber from alternative routes and plants. Relevant existing and under development technology/processes for extracting natural rubber from Hevea , guayule, and TKS are described. Hevea natural rubber comparative economics are presented and analyzed. This report covers existing global Hevea natural rubber plantation capacity and highlights the expected shift in natural rubber production centers as result of competing crops and increased plantations.

The purpose of this report is to analyze developments in first and next generation bioethanol technologies. Next generation bioethanol, includes both second generation and bolt-on technologies. The purpose of this study is to assess the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing first and next generation ethanol, and to investigate future capacity developments
The purpose of this study is to analyze developments in thermoplastic starch and thermoplastic starch blends as replacements for conventional petrochemical polymers. The report examines the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing thermoplastic starch and thermoplastic starch blends, and their relative costs by region against conventional polypropylene and HDPE.
This report investigates the various commercial and developmental routes for the production of renewable ethylene. Ethanol, bionaphtha, and methanol are all investigated as biofeedstocks for ethylene, as well as sugar and glycerin based routes directly to ethylene glycol. Cost of production models, process descriptions, capacity analysis and implications for the conventional industry are included.
This report analyzes developments in bio-based butanediol (BDO) technologies. BDO (both 1,4-BDO and 2,3-BDO) derived from bio-based materials or processes can be used as is or converted into a number of chemical products - potentially improving the GHG profile of the process. This study assesses the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing different isomers of BDO via bio-based sources or processes.
