Bioplastics and biofoams
Reduce the plastic, keep the quality with versatile biopolymers
Starch is one of the planet’s most important renewable raw materials, able to be produced from a variety of crops, including corn, potato, tapioca, rice and others. And now with our functional biopolymers, you can leverage starch's benefits in durable, semi-durable and disposable plastic products — all while improving sustainability.
Whether you produce shopping bags, plastic packaging, plastic bottles or utensils, with functional biopolymers can partially replace petroleum-based resins without compromising the strength of your products or adding manufacturing steps. Count on these innovative biomaterial ingredients to:
- Deliver improved biodegradability and disintegration, reduce disposal costs
- Increase your bioplastics' renewable content
- Reduce water absorption during processing and work with your existing equipment
- Cut the formulation costs of biodegradable plastics
- Provide enhanced performance via good dispersion, improved flowability and enhanced processability
Capture economies in your food packaging
In the food packaging industry, our functional biopolymers create mechanically stronger and more biodegradable films which have greater clarity and a more substantial gas barrier.
Decrease traditional synthetic polyesters such as PBS and PBAT
Our innovative compostable biopolymers provide unique functional characteristics, product differentiation and can reduce formulation costs, helping you serve the growing need of reducing the carbon footprint globally via a more environmentally friendly product lifecycle.
Reduce environmental impact with compostable protective packing foam
With our naturally derived, environmentally friendly raw material, manufacturers can create compostable packaging foams that match the protection and performance of synthetics.
