Abstract

Bio-based materials gained momentum in recent years due to their origin from raw materials capable of self-regeneration, locally available and theoretically biodegradable, as well as for their natural ability to store carbon dioxide (CO2) within the biomass. In a circular economy and within the perspective of the diffusion of information, this reasoned catalogue compares their technical and environmental properties together with their availability within the European territory. The aim is to support stakeholders towards a conscious choice of products and, during the process innovation phase, to help them choose the raw materials for the composition of new building materials/components to be included in a “circular” market.
