Bio-sourced Polymers

Materials for a variety of applications sourced from biomass such as sugarcane, tapioca, castor oil and cellulose.


You need solutions that:

• Reduce the use of petrochemical feedstocks and preserve valuable resources
• Can reduce energy usage
• Can give reduced carbon footprint
• Can potentially use waste products from other industries
• Can help reduce visible littering and enhance compostability
• Reduce landfill and potentially expensive preparation for recycling
• Provide enhanced public perception
• Provide enhanced haptics

We can offer:

• PLA which is both bio-sourced and biodegradable
• Bio-sourced fully water-soluble polymers
• Polymers derived fully or partially from waste products
• Engineering grade polymers partially derived from bio-source

Please note: there is a global shortage of PLA in 2019/2020 – contact us for more details.

GCR’s Granic range is available in a bio-based carrier.

GCR Group is the world leader in the development, manufacturing and commercialization of plastic compounds and mineral masterbatches for the industrial processing industry.

Lactips produce water soluble and biodegradable thermoplastic pellets based on milk protein that can be used as a raw material for thermoforming, film and injection moulding applications.

The Radilon® D trade name identifies the long molecular chain PA6.10 grades that have been developed for injection moulding and extrusion. These products, made with 64% renewable source materials, are created using Sebacic acid – a substance of biological origin obtained from castor oil plant (Ricinus communis) seeds.

By converting organic household waste into sustainable bio-based materials, UBQ™ is a novel climate positive innovation that can be used for the manufacturing of thousands of products. It is clean, sustainable, cost-effective and recyclable.
