Climate change and the role of bio-based and biodegradable materials

The Agricultural Revolution, The Industrial Revolution and The Computing Revolution have all immeasurably changed the way that we live our lives. Each of these paradigm shifts have brought huge benefits to the human race but some unforeseen negative consequences have also manifested; climate disruption, biodiversity loss, pollution and zoonotic diseases are all pressing issues that need to be solved and fast. Biotechnology is the next green revolution that promises to solve many of humanity’s current challenges.

Alongside investment into renewable energy and sustainable transport, we need to be making more advancements in sustainable materials and chemicals. We need to invest in biotechnology. Without this, we simply won’t achieve net zero. Rather than man-made factories producing chemicals, materials or energy, we now have the capability to engineer enzymes, microorganisms and plants to produce renewable, plant-derived alternatives. These have the potential to replace fossil fuels, improve human health and deliver low energy processes.
