Formatted Abstract/Summary
This chapter will set the scene for the book and summarize some of the important technologies involved in producing starch polymers: from the field to industrial applications. Different topics are presented such as the main sources of starch and the corresponding levels of world and European productions.

In a global approach “from the field to industrial products,” this introductory chapter gives the principal outputs based on nonfood starch in terms of applications and industrial products. Biodegradable multiphase materials for short-term applications, which are described at the end of this chapter, are the subject of a growing number of publications during the two last decades. This strong evolution is on agreement with the market progression, with an increasing number of real concretizations and product outputs.
