As we come to the end of the year, we offer as is now the tradition (if something we've been doing for two years can be considered such...) the ten most read stories of the year and a few of our other favourites from across 2018.
It's been quite an eventful year, with some major breakthroughs and announcements and a glut of brands turning to bio-based as under pressure from customers, they seek to make their products more sustainable. But there have still been failures, the costs and pressures of scale up again being a challenge too far from some high-profile companies.
A big thanks for all the support across this year, and we look forward to lots more stories (plus some developments we can't tell you about yet!) in 2019.
So has made the top ten?
