M∙VERA® – Bioplastics for the European market
Due to the current situation and in order to slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus, the demand for hygienic packaging materials is increasing. Plastics meet the requirements such as good barrier properties and are thus often used. However, the possibly increasing amount of plastic waste poses a problem. BIO-FED meets these market needs and provides customised solutions for high bio content materials.
The global bio-based polymer market 2019
Turbulent times for bio-based polymers in 2019: PLA sold out despite expansion, as did PHA. Bio-based PP available for the first time, increased production of PBAT, PBS, bio-based PE, starch-containing polymer compounds and epoxy resins. Lower production is seen particularly in bio-based PET. At the same time, there is a lack of support from policy makers, who are taking bio-based and biodegradable plastics into collective punishment with fossil plastics in the Plastic Policy. www.bio-based.eu/reports
