Near Shanghai there will be built the factory where they will produce films of bioplastic at the end of the year. The idea was created in the minds of Czech scientists who developed the green technology Hydal. A cup or films of this bioplastic can easily be decomposed completely in the nature.

This factory is owned by the Nafigate Corporation company, together with Chinese Cleanet. They transform a scientific research into a business. The Czech scientists provided the know-how and the Chinese gave two million euros to boost the science.

China will mainly be producing the agricultural films, which decomposed over time naturally.The Czech gardeners will be able to buy them next year and the farmers in 2019 when the product begins its production on the big line.

Last year's turnover was around 30 million. According to an estimate it will quadruple this year.

An interest in "green" technology also have the USA and Saudi Arabia.

The management of Brno awarded to Professor Ivana Márová from the Faculty of Chemistry VUT prestigious award for his contribution to technical sciences. She won the award for the development of technology for the microbial production of bioplastics from used cooking oil. The license to this technology was sold to our company, which launched this technology under the brand name Hydal. Technology has received a prestigious award from the world agency Frost & Sullivan, which assesses the contribution of new knowledge for human development.

Bio-on and Moore Capital ink deal to build first Brazil-based PHA production plant
The Brazilian investment company Moore Capital has signed a license agreement with Bio-on, an Italian biochemistry company specialized in the development of eco-sustainable industrial solutions, to build the first Brazil-based facility to produce PHAs bioplastic from sugar cane co-products.
According to the two companies, the new plant will become the most advanced biopolymers production site in South America.
PHAs, or polyhydroxyalkanoates, are bioplastics that can replace a number of traditional polymers currently made with petrochemical processes using hydrocarbons.
“We have decided to use Bio-on technology,” says Otávio Pacheco, Management Partner of Moore Capital, “because it represents an exceptional opportunity for industrial development in Brazil. This is why we have decided to invest 5,5 million Euro in acquiring the production license and another 80 million in constructing the first facility”. Moore Capital also has an option to build a second plant in Brazil. KL)

Robust growth projected for biodegradable plastics through 2020
According to a new market research report, the Biodegradable Plastics Market is projected to grow from more than USD 2.0 Billion in 2015 to USD 3.4 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 10.8% between 2015 and 2020.
The report, entitled "Biodegradable Plastics Market by Type (PLA, PHA, PBS, Starch-Based Plastics, Regenerated Cellulose, PCL), by Application (Packaging, Fibers, Agriculture, Injection Molding, and Others) - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2020", was published by last month by MarketsandMarkets, a market research consultancy based in Pune, India.
In recent years, biodegradable plastics have found wide acceptance in various industries because of its properties such as low carbon footprints and compostability. These properties can help in limiting the degradation of the environment caused by the use of petroleum based plastics.
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the biodegradable plastics market. The growth in the market is also influenced by the increased environmental awareness and concerns among the general population in developing countries.
The leading players in the biodegradable plastics market such as Metabolix Inc. (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Corbion N.V. (Netherlands), Natureworks LLC (U.S.), Biome Technologies Plc (U.K.), and others are profiled in the report. The key players in this market have adopted various strategies to strengthen their market position and increase their market shares. Partnership, agreement & collaboration, and new product launch are some of the major strategies adopted by the market players to achieve growth in the biodegradable plastics market.(KL)

3D Printed “Coffee” cup? Right here!


Filament manufacturer 3Dom USA recently unveiled its newest offering: a new bio-material made from PLA and coffee grounds, which has been launched under the name Wound Up™. The new filament was developed as part of a continuing partnership with Fargo, North Dakota-based bio-composite company, c2renew.

c2renew uses proprietary bio-composite formulations to design materials, compounds and parts that satisfy demanding engineering specifications.
The use of coffee grounds, a waste byproduct from coffee, has yielded a sustainable 3D printing material with a rich, brown color and visibly unique print finishes. As 3Dom USA says, cups printed from Wound Up™ filament are truly “coffee” cups.

3Dom woundup coffee

This is the first in a line of intriguing materials from 3Dom USA called the c2renew Composites. More distinctive bio-based products will be released in the near future.
Wound Up™ filament can be printed on any machine capable of printing with PLA and comes on 3Dom’s 100% bio-based Eco-Spool.

3Dom USA was founded in 2014 to be able to serve the 3D printing industry with high-quality, sustainable 3D printing materials. The company was developed from the ground up for 3D printing, 3Dom USA is dedicated to high quality, practical and sustainable 3D printing materials, and to helping 3D printers everywhere to Build Better.

French law introduces measures to strengthen bioplastics market
Last week, the French parliament adopted the law on energy transition and green growth proposed by Ségolène Royal, Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy.
Under the new law, not only will the share of nuclear power in the French energy mix will be reduced, also a wide range of legislative proposals, relating to the use of renewables (40% by 2030) and CO2 reduction (-40% by 2030), will be put forward.

Bioplastic lightweight bags for fruits and vegetables, for example, will need to be biobased and compostable in home composting from 1 January 2017 on. The minimum biobased content and its progressive increase will be defined in a decree of the State Council, which will also define measures for consumer information about the material composition and utilization of such bags. Furthermore, plastic packaging for commercial mailshots will have to be biodegradable/compostable in home composting by 1 January 2017.

All of this is welcome news to European Bioplastics (EUBP), the European association representing the interests of the industry along the entire bioplastics value chain. “We fully support the clear commitment to plastics which are biobased and biodegradable,“ commented François de Bie, Chairman of the Board of European Bioplastics.
