Biome accelerates the commercialisation of biodegradable tree shelters

Biome Bioplastics has secured £248,000 of further funding to support the commercialisation of its biodegradable tree shelters. This additional funding follows the successful completion of an initial feasibility study to develop and test a new generation of biodegradable tree shelters.

Tree shelters are used to protect young trees and bushes from predation by animals and are well-proven to limit losses in the first years of a tree’s life. However, the majority are never collected at the end of their operational life. As they are traditionally made from oil-based, non-biodegradable plastics, they end up littering landscapes with large and small pieces of plastic. Plans to significantly increase tree planting as part of the UK’s push to net zero emissions are expected to exacerbate this problem further.

Biome Technologies plc is a growth oriented, commercially driven technology group. The Group’s primary activity is the development of its fast growing business in bioplastics. The Group comprises two divisions: Biome Bioplastics and Stanelco RF Technologies.
