Our increasing dependence on fossil-based materials, especially plastics, has inflated our carbon footprint and led to a destructible impact on our environment. But with innovations that replace these outdated materials on the rise, we’re on the lookout for new ways to lower carbon output.
By: Biobent Polymers
Bio-composite bioplastics that can reduce dependence on fossil-based ingredients by 30-40%. By innovatively cross-linking low-cost agricultural waste with traditional thermoplastics, destined for the landfill, this process can maintain and enhance performance while offering cost and weight savings.
By: Pivot Materials
This advanced material is made from bamboo and can be used in place of fossil fuel-based plastics. It is made by incorporating the natural fibers of bamboo into traditional plastics. The strength and life of bamboo-based products are equivalent, if not superior, to the quality of hardwood and plastic products. The resulting material is lightweight, sustainable, durable, and cost-competitive. Applications include automotive, toys, and packaging.
Proearth biodegradable textiles
By: Schoeller Textil AG
A new collection of highly sustainable, high-quality textiles designed to reduce carbon footprint and offer a better end-of-life option for fashion and outdoor markets. It is made with 100% recycled polyester that has been optimized for biodegradation with the help of anaerobic bacteria found in landfills.
A PLA filament material composed of a patented mineral compound and a biodegradable polymer. This material can mineralize greenhouse gases in the surrounding environment and convert them into harmless byproducts. This technology helps reduce our carbon footprint and improve our air quality.
