Plastrans was established in 1991 and has, since the year 2000, been partnered with one of the world’s biggest petrochemical companies: TOTAL. Moreover, we have entered into collaborations with and have contributed to the success of other well-renown companies such as Silon and Rompetrol. In times of accreting importance of resource preservation we duly cherish our cooperation with Multiport, one of the leading manufacturers of raw materials from plastic waste.
Ultimately, our most recent partnership since the year 2018 has enabled us to provide customers with a state-of-the-art biobased alternative to fossil-based plastics – the feedstock being the inedible parts of the Tapioca plant.
Plastrans is part of Ghazan Global, a corporation dedicated to investing into the future.
In their actions, entrepreneurs need to consider two key components. An individual component called profit, and a cultural component called social impact. Our overriding priority will always be that our entrepreneurial value creation must benefit the Plastrans family on the one hand, and all stakeholders who depend on us on the other.

Plastics and Innovation
Ah! Plastics and the environment, 2 words that do not seem to get along in one sentence lately. The rising concern of “we are killing the planet” has encouraged people to look more and more into their habits and question how sustainable their lifestyle really is. Which means actually paying attention to what they consume.

A different view on Bio-based Plastics and why there is still work to do.
Bio-based plastics provide many advantages and added value compared to conventional plastics. On the other hand, there are several drawbacks, while bio-based plastics’ implementation is not accepted widely in different segments of the plastics industry. The current limitation of bio-based plastics include topics such as lack of consumer awareness and the right information about them, limitation in technical features, lack of legislation clarities and unclear policies, the adaption with existing recycling streams, and sustainability issues
