great plastics, naturally
We supply a great range of bioplastics that replace existing oil based materials in a wide variety of applications. Naturally sourced our plastic polymers have a high sustainable content and can recycle back to nature.
Our customers are our focus and we provide full application support to brand owners and converters working with them to enhance the value of their products through development and design.
The bioplastics market is a rapidly evolving and interesting dynamic space. We are often asked to explain what is going on and why bioplastics are an important part of building a more sustainable economy.
Chris Goodhall has now written a fascinating paper on this subject. Click below to read his paper titled: Bioplastics: an important component in global sustainability.
BiomeEP is Biome’s new range of bioplastic polymers for the flexible film market. Providing the usual high performance and biocredentials expected from Biome Bioplastics materials they also have enhanced wet-out and print adhesion that enables fabulous print quality at high production speeds.Find out more >
The BiomeHT range is a new class of bioplastic with a higher temperature capability whilst retaining great environmental credentials. With a softening point of greater than 90°C, in both dry and aqueous conditions, this is some 20-30°C above many other competitive bioplastics.Find out more >
Our bioplastics are the perfect product for these applications, providing the strength and versatility of conventional plastics whilst saving cost on disposal. Plant based sustainable sources appeal to end users in this sector whilst independent tests prove our products enhance soil fertility on decomposition.
Packaging without the guilt? Our great range of plastics can be used to form a wide range of packaging items. Consumers respond positively to the great natural feel of our materials, their sustainable origins and their potential for composting or digestive disposal.
Standby for bioplastics! As manufacturers seek to improve the energy performance of electronic devices both in standby and operating mode, there is no point overlooking those standard oil-based plastic casings.
