INZEA® biopolymers represent the sustainable solution to applications where biodegradable plastics offer higher value. They are compatible with standard fillers, additives and biopolymer based master-batches and can be processed by injection or extrusion methods using conventional equipment. They are applied in food packaging, paper coating and lamination, shrink films, agriculture applications and many others.
Lubrizol’s Bio TPU™ product solutions include Pearlthane™ ECO, Pearlbond™ ECO and ESTANE® 3D ECO TPU and are bio-based TPUs made with renewable-sourced raw materials. They can be processed via injection molding and extrusion and have multiple benefits, such as superior abrasion resistance, good chemical resistance, cold temperature flexibility, among many others. Some areas of applications are: textile coatings for shoe stiffeners, hoses, timing belts and molded parts for various market segments, such as footwear, automotive, industrial, consumer electronics, and sports/recreation.
Biocomposites, aslo known as Woodcompounds or Durasense®, is the portfolio of the recently created company WoodComposites Sweden AB, following Sweden Timber’s acquisition of Stora Enso’s biocomposites business unit at Hyltebruk plant, as announced in September 2023 (full announcement available here). This is a range of bio-based alternatives to conventional polymers, which brings the good moldability of polyolefins together with the strength and sustainability of lignocellulosic fibers, resulting in a global reduced CO2 footprint of up to 80%. These biocomposites are renowned for their exceptional blend of sustainability, strength, and versatility.
