Abstract

In the last 5 years (2010–2015) the worldwide annual production of plastics surpassed the figure of 300 Mt; more than 80% of the plastic market deals with the production, transformation and end use of polyolefins. Plastics are a fundamental component of everyday life providing cost effective, light and disposable tools which find application in different fields. The increased concerns about the depletion of fossil reserves, the greenhouse gas emissions and feedstock costs cause bio-derived polyolefins are emerging rapidly as valid alternative to the fossil fuel based counterpart. In this review the drop-in synthesis of conventional olefins is reviewed and the properties of some novel bioderived polyolefins are presented and discussed
