Biodegradable. Recyclable. Earth-friendly. Today’s consumers are seeking out more sustainable products that are kinder to the environment. And to help manufacturers transition from synthetics to “nature-based” materials in areas of agriculture, manufacturing processes, building materials and packaging, Ingredion is uniquely ready to help.
With expert biomaterials scientists at Ingedion Idea Labs® innovation centers, and an integrated portfolio of polymer ingredients that includes modified starches, polyols and dextrins, we help manufacturers boost their sustainability story — with renewable, cost-effective biopolymer solutions that provide function and performance in areas traditionally dominated by synthetics.
Count on us for:
Take advantage of our broad solutions toolkit to deliver functionality and performance in your applications:
Replace synthetics with more sustainable and economical bio-based alternatives.
Explore sustainable biopolymer solutions for seed coatings, crop protection and other agriculture applications.
Increase the sustainability of your plastic products with bio-based polymers.
From shingles to insulation and beyond, our biomaterials address your efficiency and performance needs.
Sizing starches help glass fiber manufacturers with consistent quality, flexibility and cost-effectiveness.
Create safe and effective cleaning, dishwashing and laundry solutions with our bio-based additives.
Improve performance in drilling fluids and filtrate loss control.
Hold various materials to form or maintain their shapes with naturally derived biomaterial binders.
In addition to the applications above, Ingredion biomaterials are helping chemical manufacturers to produce renewable chemicals in bioscience processes, replacing traditional petroleum processes. By using our plant-based dextrose and fructose as feedstocks, a wide range of products can be derived such as bio-based lactic acid, succinic acid, FDME, Bio-PDO™ and FDCA. In addition, our dextrose or modified starches can be used as monomers or starting materials in various polymer syntheses.
