What are Bioplastics?
Bioplastic are plastic materials made from renewable biomass, capable of biodegradation under natural conditions. Made from renewable biomass material, they are considered an environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum-based plastics.
Not all bioplastics are biodegradable, with some being less biodegradable than petroleum-based plastics. Biodegradable bioplastics are specifically relevant for use in flexible packaging, like that used in disposable food packaging.
Bioplastics can be used for disposable packaging material, building and construction, rigid packaging, textiles, electronics, automotive and transportation as well as agriculture & horticulture, to name but a few.
LignOrganic’s biopolymer range is produced from renewable natural resources. Our bioplastics are environmentally friendly, biodegradable and compostable. We focus on offering the highest quality of bioplastic whilst ensuring continued focus on environmental consciousness. In addition to being eco-friendly, our bioplastics have UV filtering/blocking capabilities and can be used in a variety of industries.
LignOrganic is currently developing a bioplastic material called ‘Dissolv’. Our aim is to ensure that Dissolv is not only comparable to conventional plastic packaging, but can increase the shelf life of the packaged material and serve as a barrier not only to microbes, but also degradation by UV light. Dissolv also degrades in water into its organic components thus reducing the environmental impact and making it a better and environmentally sound alternative to current plastics.
