A Sustainable Opportunity with the Bio-based Polymers

Environmental sustainability is driving an intense search for sustainable polymers and Bio-based Polymers have emerged as a green alternative. Conventional plastics such as Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE), and Polystyrene (PS) are produced from fossil-based resources. Bio-based polymers such as Bio-PP, Bio-PE, and Bio-PS are made from bio-feedstocks such as vegetable oils or waste and residues from bio-origin.

Bio-based Polymers can help us to do more for the environment without compromising on performance:

Benefits of using Bio-based PP, PE, and PS

  • Certified renewable feedstock-based PP, PE, and PS
  • A drop-in solution to replace conventional PP, PE, and PS
  • 100% Recyclable
  • Certification: Mass balance, ISCC +
  • Achievingng sustainability in food contact applications
  • LCA analysis performed by VIRAIG indicates that up to 4 kg CO2 can be saved for every kg of polymer produced when compared to the production from conventional fossil feedstock
  • Feedstock sustainability is guaranteed by ISCC-type certification (recognized by European Union)
  • No deforestation

 

Plastrans Petrochemicals GmbH is a distributor and service provider of TotalEnergies for Bio-based polymers such as Bio-PP, Bio-PE, & Bio-PS for process applications such as injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, and thermoforming, etc.
