Perstorp is the world technology leader in caprolactones and offers you a unique combination of knowledge, expertise, plant & test facilities. Bioplastics is a focus area for Perstorp. It is an important part of our commitment to the environment and our vision for a more sustainable future. We believe in the dynamic bioplastic market which is still young and fast-growing, and is looking for new innovations. With the major growth in the packaging sector our resources are ideally suited to support these three segments; bags and films, rigid packaging and paper coatings.

Polycaprolactones (PCLs) are known for their compatibility with many types of polymers, including biopolymers. PCLs have excellent biodegradability properties, which can enhance properties of biopolymers and create unique product characteristics. With our offer we can improve existing bioplastic solutions, extend the use of biopolymers and provide you with an excellent toolbox to create competitive and more sustainable products.
