@Beth: It sounds like that's exctly what's being offered.  Many want biobased materials as part of their company's greening.  Seems like it's a good marketing piece for manufacturers to use.

What's the benefit of using this material ove Plexiglas--that it's more enviornmentally friendly? So if I understanding correctly, this gives a design engineer who might traditionally consider plexiglas or a like material for a particular application, a more eco-friendly alternative, all while keeping the properties that make plexiglas appealing in the first place?
