About BioSourced™

Your go-to digital hub for exploring biomaterials and the innovators fueling a sustainable future.

BioSourced™ (bio-sourced.com) was launched in 2016 as a free online resource to help more companies discover bio-based materials for commercial and consumer applications, including polymers, chemicals, raw materials, and composites derived partially or fully from renewable feedstocks.

In 2023, our mission is to expand our database by finding and showcasing innovative, high-quality biobased products and materials from start-ups and established producers located around the world. 

We also hope to build a centralized platform where engineers, designers, formulators, and procurement professionals can discover and source sustainable, performance-enhancing materials for their projects. 

If you have any questions about this site, or if you would like to explore partnership opportunities (including content collaborations, featured directory placement, or sponsorship), please reach out to me using our contact form, by email, or connect on LinkedIn.
