Bioplastics and biodegradable plastics, in particular, have increase their presence in our daily lives. The main reasons behind this are the need for more sustainable materials, updated regulations and new marketing trends.
Nevertheless, achieving optimum performance with biodegradable polymers is not an easy issue, with improvements such as impact strength, thermal resistance, flexibility, stiffness and flame retardancy still posing serious challenges, especially for the new bioplastics that are being developed.
In order to solve these needs, AIMPLAS has developed solutions in critical areas for bioplastic improvement based on:
Technical advice and assistance
AIMPLAS has been working with bioplastics since 2000, mainly in two areas: the modification of existing materials like PLA, starch, PBS, PHA-PHB, and PVOH, with all kinds of natural and synthetic additives; and the development of new bioplastics by reactive extrusion, destructurisation (thermoplastic starches) and gelation (PVOH).
