There is a strong trend towards sustainable, biodegradable and renewable material across the world, which can be seen in many recent regulations. One million plastic bags are used per minute globally. Many of them end up in our natural environment and stay there. Plastic is an amazing material, but it needs to be handled and recycled in the right way. Already in 2014 the ratio of plastic vs. fish in the sea was 1:5. If we continue like this, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. We are all responsible for the plastics we consume. Priority number one is to make sure that the plastic is being taking care of properly. Although the recycling symbol has been around for 40 years, still only 14% of all plastics is being taken care of.

No one can do everything but everyone can do something.
The challenge for bioplastics has been to combine performance and biodegradability of the end application material. Our biodegradable Capa™ can create products with high performing properties without compromising sustainability. Capa™ for bioplastics enables freedom to design polymers that are flexible or hard, transparent or crystalline, tough or rigid, and with a targeted melting point and polarity while still being biodegradable. In the right conditions, Capa™ for Bioplastics will biodegrade in 40 days.
