Biopolymers from renewable resources derive from biomasses. For this reason biopolymers have a much lower environmental footprint than oil-based polymers, thanks to reduced CO2 emissions in their Life Cycle Assessment.
This advantage is achievable also using scraps of food industry or from agriculture. Raw materials from renewable resources can be a sustainable and environmental-friendly solution without affecting human food chain.
PLANTURA grades for durable goods are polymers derived from renewable resources and with a biomass content >80%. The bio certification is performer following ASTM D 6866 and ISO 16620 standards. The necessity to have performances comparable or superior to oil-based polymers, pushed PLANTURA to develop new materials able to survive the most hard conditions and guarantee them for the whole lifecycle of the final product.
