Biodégradable et compostable

We need to eliminate unnecessary plastic items. Recycle all plastic waste for economic purposes and thereby eliminate it from the environment. Innovate to ensure that the plastics we do require are reusable, recyclable or compostable/biodegradable. We help the bio-plastics and bio-adhesives industry towards a circular economy. Our
biodegradable polymers and starches to be used in new applications with customized properties.
As being a part of a bioplastic blend it can be processed on unmodified thermoplastic equipment

BIOPLASTICS offer great opportunities, we help to enable this

In the past decades, many new polymers from renewable feedstocks have been developed. Starch was rediscovered as a plastic material. Polylactic acid (PLA) and polyhydroxyalkanoate/polyhydroxybutyrate (PHA/PHB) produced from sugars and starches have become important raw materials. Still, these biopolymers come with drawbacks such as:

  • lower material performance
  • high cost for production
  • problems in processing

Our biodegradeable addites are an enabler which allows the combination of several biopolymers. The resulting performance and processing becomes comparable to traditional polymers or even better thanks to added functionalities
