    Love it! Hope we see a lot of algae based products the next years. Bioplastics need time to be developed to market but may change our dependency on oil.

    Thank you for the interesting article about biopolymers and their beauty!

    I know that this market is growing rapidly, but biopolymers are mostly still to expensive for a wide usability. So it is probably a perfect idea to use them for producs with a modern design or more the luxury segement of a product family.

    The first picture of the bottles is quite fancy. The “waterdrop”-design would really fit to water-bottles.

    Thank you again and have a nice day.
