In recent years environmental and sustainability concerns have impacted the global chemical industry and instituted a rush to produce products from renewable raw materials. This dynamic, complex and turbulent organizational scenario, around themes touching on the issue of sustainable development model, was created involving a large number of different actors: chemical/petrochemical industries, agroindustry companies, oil/gas companies, brand owners and end users, biotechnology startups, governments, universities and society. This paper proposed the application of a structured and dynamic method of technological prediction for biopolymers in three levels: systematic monitoring process, relational database and the “alive” Technology Roadmapping visualization tool. The main objective is to identify strategic actions, business models, the latest´s technologies in development, as well as trends in the field of biopolymers in order to support companies on position themselves in this competitive scenario. Furthermore, companies, universities, government agencies and institutions could apply this dynamic and alive methodology to indeed access innovation opportunities, challenges and threats for different industrial segments and to provide dynamic knowledge management collaborating to their strategy including a database crossing for the all organization.
