What are bio-based materials?

The prefix "bio" is very common today in the description of a product.The term derives from the Greek βίος and is evidently linked to the concept of living, life or living being.
A product can therefore be called -bio at least for two reasons, or because it is "friend" of living beings, or because it derives from them.
In the first case, the bio concept basically concerns the safety for users and the environment in general, while in the second case it means that the raw materials it is made of come from living organisms (or that were).
Although they are often confused, they are two completely different concepts that do not necessarily overlap (read more).
