Scientists at the University of York (York, UK) are to lead a new government-backed research project to investigate the potential conversion of waste biomass and carbon dioxide (CO2) into polymer raw materials, the university has announced. The United Kingdom's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC; Swindon, UK) has awarded York's Green Chemistry Center of Excellence (GCCE) £3 million ($5 million) to develop industrially viable routes to replacements for petrochemical-derived polymers using waste biomass, such as orange peel, pine...
