European Renewable Resources and Materials Association

ERRMA was founded in 2000 as a pan-European collaboration between independent national centres of bio-based products and materials expertise. The organisation has the role of  informing industry and policy colleagues in Europe about the real possibilities provided by renewable materials.

On this website, you will find information about the technologies focused upon by ERRMA. You will also find details of the organisations which ERRMA works with and the activities that ERRMA is involved in.

 

The Importance of Renewable Materials

Renewable resources including vegetable oil, starch, sugar and cellulose can be converted, using different technologies, into a range of bio-based products. These include biopolymers, biolubricants, biosurfactants, speciality and platform chemicals, composites and construction materials.Renewable resources including vegetable oil, starch, sugar and cellulose can be converted, using different technologies, into a range of bio-based products. These include biopolymers, biolubricants, biosurfactants, speciality and platform chemicals, composites and construction materials.

These products can offer specific advantages to the companies that produce and use them, including novel functionality and improved ‘green’ credentials. They can also offer a number of benefits to policy makers at national and EU level, including the development of innovative markets in which Europe can play a leading role.
