Second generation biodegradable starch based bioplastic from by-products of the potato processing
industry.
NL-TO-70
Abstract
A Dutch SME has developed a new type of bioplastic which is based on starch from byproducts of potatoes. The material is developed for injection moulding, extrusion and thermoforming applications. The firm is looking for commercial agreements with companies who want to develop new market applications which comply with the cradle tot cradle principle.
Description
The Dutch company is producing biodegradable plastics, based on starch from the by-product of the potatoe industry, since 2001. Based on the experience and know-how from the first generation bioplastics the firm has developed a new type with improved properties. The development has resulted in an extremely versatile bioplastic, appropriate for extensive use in various applications. The firm is now booking for companies who want to develop new market applications which comply the cradle tot cradle principle.
Innovation and advantages
+ The eco-friendly bioplastic is based on renewable resources and can replace
oil-based plastic;
+ The material isn't consuming food resources because it is made from
biomass extracted from inedible by-products of potatoes.
+ This material doesn't claim large areas of land necessary to grow crops for
human consumption.
+ Production of this bioplastic requires less energy than polyethylene
production;
+ The material can be processed with conventional plastic converting
machines for injection molding, extrusion and thermoforming;
+ Colouring can be done by biobased and conventional masterbatches;
