Abstract Poster of the Carbohydrate Competence Center. The increasing demand for 2nd generation bio-based performance materials presents an excellent opportunity for the development of agricultural residues like sugar beet pulp (SBP) as feedstock for renewable polymers. Refining SBP yields various industrially interesting components, such as galacturonic acid. This sugar acid can be transformed into a novel family of bio-based building blocks called GalX. Here we report on the use of GalX building blocks in bio-based polymers.
