Materials have a solid aggregate state and are used as engineering material from which components and structures can be made. An example for such materials are biopolymers and biocomposites that can be used for various applications such as packaging and constructions. Some of these materials have specific physicochemical properties according to which specific functions can be fulfilled such as active barrier functions, biodegradability and other.

Specific materials

Depending on the chemical/physical structure, composition, and application field the materials can be divided into different groups. The following non-exhaustive list shows the potential main groups. The decision support tool aids the search for suitable conversion technologies capable to produce these materials from food waste as well as garden and park waste.
