Our vision is to create a society that is regenerative by design, using natural materials at their highest value that enable a truly circular economy
Therefore we are developing a digital platform that helps you
to find the best sustainable material for your product.
Bioplastics: An Overview
Almost every conventional plastic can be replaced by a bioplastic and biobased does not always mean biodegradable
Benefits of Bioplastics
As a renewable, local resource, bioplastics tackling climate change and help to close the loop

Bioplastics in a Circular Economy
Bioplastics are made from biomass, such as green waste from a local farm, directly as a material, or indirectly as energy. The other way around, biomass can be made from degradable bioplastics and the circle continues.
85 % of every conventional plastic material can be replaced with a bioplastic alternative that decreases GHG emissions and accelerates the transition to a circular economy
Sources of Bioplastic
Vegetable Oils: soy, palm, sunflower, castor, rapeseed oil, etc.
Starch: corn, wheat, potatoes, tapioca, etc.
Glucose: sugar cane, beets, etc.
Biomass from Lignocellulose: wood, by-products or waste from agriculture or the timber industry (bagasse from sugar cane, straw, etc.)
Municipal Waste: organic waste, sewage, etc.
Bio-based polymers are made from renewable raw materials that are also used for other purposes, in particular for feeding humans and animals. The proportion used for the production of bioplastics, however, is marginal (approx. 0.02 of the global agricultural area). The bioplastics industry is also adopting the use of non-food crops (2nd and 3rd Generation), such as cellulose and algae or organic waste with a view to its further use to produce bioplastics materials. The even larger growth in the use of biomass feedstock for non-food purposes has demonstrated the technical possibility of producing these materials on a million-ton scale, substituting petrochemical plastics in meaningful quantities.
