What does a biopolymer expert or a biopolymer consultant do? Strictly speaking, biopolymers are polymers produced by living organisms; in other words, they are polymeric biomolecules. Since they are polymers, biopolymers contain monomeric units that are covalently bonded to form larger structures. In addition, synthetic polymers, traditionally produced from fossil fuel feedstocks, may be termed biopolymers when they are instead chemically synthesized from biologically-derived sugars.
A biopolymer expert is a scientist or engineer with an education, background and experience in a variety of biopolymers. The biopolymer consultant can do such things as assisting with evaluation of elastomeric and plastic bio-polymers and blends, with and without fillers, including testing, properties, uses, manufacturing and end of life uses.
