As biomaterials technology and knowledge are steadily advanced, their commercial importance in almost every area of manufacturing grows accordingly. BC Materials helps organisations identify and exploit these emerging opportunities.

BC Materials carries out fundamental and applied research into the use of bio-synthetics for products as diverse as chewable dog toys and extreme weather walking gear.

In other areas, we have helped producers of thermal and acoustic insulation switch from mineral to natural fibre sources and found a way for farmers and growers to earn money from agricultural waste and by-products like cereal, straw and sugar beet to deliver practical, profitable applications for state of the art biomaterials technology.
