On the path to a “greener” future, that is sustainable and environmentally friendly, innovation is part of the solution and an extraordinary leverage to provide the necessary impetus to new technologies that help in mitigating climate change.
There is a great interest in the revaluation of waste originated by different industries to apply it in formulating new materials. In this sense, bioplastics derived from natural resources are presented as sustainable and competitive materials that contribute to reducing environmental impact, in addition to promoting the circular economy.
In addition, according to the European Bioplastics Association, bioplastic is a generic term that describes both plastics of renewable origin, i.e., bio-based, as well as those that have the property of being biodegradable (including those derived from petroleum). Therefore, there is an even broader universe in the research of these biodegradable plastics that helps mitigating climate change.
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.
