We must all do our part in reducing the impact of plastics in the environment.
If you are looking for more sustainable plastics solutions, here are five reasons to choose bioplastics:

1. Innovative and sustainable polymers

The development of biodegradable polymers with additional advantages such as
reduced carbon footprint or additional end-of-life options open up possibilities for new and
interesting bioplastic applications.

2. Optimized processing

Capa™ for Bioplastics is easy to process and its low melting point enables a lower processing temperature
 as well as good dispersion in the blend which means a more efficient production process.

3. Reduced carbon footprint

By extending the use of biopolymers, the carbon footprint in different applications can be reduced.

4. Long-lasting performance

Capa™ for Bioplastics enhances the performance of bioplastics, improving stability and
durability of the final product. 

5. Sustainable end-of-life options

There is far too much plastics polluting our planet. Plastics that will not biodegrade.
Biodegradable and compostable solutions reduces accumulation of plastics in our environment,
making them a more sustainable alternative.
