Biomaterials experts assist with bio-based materials – those made from substances derived from living (or once-living) organisms. These materials are sometimes referred to as biomaterials, but this word also has another meaning, especially when used in conjunction with the medical profession. Bio-based materials typically refer to modern materials that have undergone extensive processing. Bio-based materials or biomaterials fall under the broader category of bioproducts or bio-based products which includes materials, chemicals, and energy derived from renewable biological resources.
