A German edition was published in 2009, entitled: Endres/Siebert-Raths, Technische Biopolymere: Rahmenbedingungen, Marktsituation, Herstellung, Aufbau und Eigenschaften. München: Hanser-Verlag, 2009, ISBN: 978-3-446-41683-3
These publications are based on the most current research and offer a comprehensive overview of biopolymers from an engineering point of view. They give a detailed description of the property profiles of biopolymers as compared to conventional plastics. This includes their processing properties as well as their production, chemical composition and structure, the specific testing standards and respective regulatory framework. Also considered are the current market position and disposal characteristics of bioplastics.
