This issue of the High-Tech Materials TOE highlights a unique biodegradable straw made from polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) that biodegrades in six months and does not cause environmental pollution. A lightweight aluminum made from scrap material, which can be used to make automotive structural components, has also been showcased in this issue. A high scale graphene manufacturing route obtained by high speed collision of pure graphite with solvents has also been profiled. The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Light metals, bioresorbable, graphene, polyhydroxyalkanoate, PHA
