They are bioactive materials and easily compactable to the human tissue. They show good degree of biodegradability. They are commonly used in medicines, tissue engineering, manufacturing of human body parts and other manufacturing applications. The sustainability and biomaterials are co-complementary to each other and support the manufacturing/development of new s...
