Bio Plastics


These are plastics made from plants. The starch contained within the plant is processed to produce a polymer. It is actually possible to produce most polymers from bio materials, but the bio plastics London Bio Packaging uses most commonly are Ingeo™ PLA (Poly-Lactic Acid) and Mater-Bi®.

Bio-plastics behave in a similar way to conventional plastics and are suitable for most packaging applications. However, unlike finite oil based plastics which take millions of years to form and hundreds of years to degrade, they are annually renewable and suitable for commercial compost (nature’s way of recycling) within 12 weeks where facilities exist. The carbon footprint of Bio-plastic is therefore much lower than traditional petroleum based plastics. For examples, manufacturing Ingeo produces 60 percent less greenhouse gases and uses 50 percent less non-renewable energy than traditional plastics like PET
