biopolymers are an important extract from seaplant raw materials
The significance of these products to the Raw
Materials Community is outlined in our brief introduction to that
segment of the seaplant industry.
SuriaLink does not
pretend to be a biopolymers site. We keep abreast of developments among
biopolymer producers and major biopolymer users to the extent that this
effects seaplant communities per se. After all, some of these
companies are the real "big guys" when it comes to buying
seaplant raw materials.
treatment of biopolymers in commerce we defer to dedicated sites such as
Dennis Seisun's IMR International
or to the sites of biopolymer producers such as:
BD Biosciences [Difco]
Specialty Products [ [ISP Alginates]
Still, there is a very
fuzzy line between where "raw material" ends and
"extract" begins. SuriaLink considers that
"semi-refined" products and products subjected to post-harvest
upgrading are still "Seaplants". We are developing as an information source for this
important industry segment as well as lining up trade
facilities to help buyers and sellers of these products do
business with each other.
