Biofibre GmbH is a 100% subsidiary of LWB Steinl GmbH & Co KG, a leading manufacturer of machines and systems for the rubber processing industry. We develop, produce and sell natural fiber reinforced bio plastics based on a protected production process for thermoplastic processing into molded articles with a focus on injection molding.

The material consists of a matrix of biopolymers and natural fibers. The natural fiber is combined with the matrix component and necessary additives in the manufacturing.

Sustainability is defined amongst other things through the use of recycled material as an eco-efficient raw material without using fossil fuels.

Biofibre®, our bioplastics compound, can be further processed to final products using standard process technology in order to secure our customers’ investments. Biofibre® represents an attractive offer for the sustainable manufacturing industry and helps to avoid plastic waste.

BIOTEC is one of the world-wide leading companies in producing starch based compounds. Established 1992 and located in Emmerich am Rhein (Germany) BIOTEC is developing and producing biodegradable and compostable materials, called BIOPLAST, by using potato starch as the main renewable resource.

BIOTEC’s customers, who are making mainly shopper bags, refuse bags or fruit & vegetable bags out of BIOPLAST prefer the excellent extrusion behavior, the high mechanical properties and absence of disturbing smell of the compound

Over the last years the various regulations implemented by the EU and single member states have brought a long list of increasing requirements for bags regarding composting properties and renewable content.

BIOTEC has developed a range of products called BIOPLAST 300, BIOPLAST 400 and BIOPLAST 500. These bioplastics are plasticizer-free, thermoplastic materials that contain natural potato starch and other biologically sourced polymers. All products are certified as OK Compost and OK Compost HOME by Vinçotte. The bio-based carbon share is of 30%, 40% and 50% respectively, confirmed by Beta Analytics. All products made from BIOPLAST are 100% biodegradable and compostable according to EN 13432 standard.

BIOPLAST 300, BIOPLAST 400 and BIOPLAST 500 are suitable for processing by blown film extrusion to produce items that are completely biodegradable. The absence of plasticizer allows the material to be easily processed to stable products of consistent quality.

BIOTEC is providing a wide range of solutions to bags makers to fulfill the highest requirements e.g. the bio-waste directive for refuse bags in Germany or the bag legislation for fruit & vegetable bags in France.

DINCERTCO TÜV RheinlandDIN CERTCO is the certification organisation of TÜV Rheinland Group and DIN, the German Institute for Standardization. Standards are indispensable instruments in ensuring safety technology, in protecting health, the environment, and customer interests, generally. DIN CERTCO assess and registers a broad range of products and services, and certifies qualified enterprises and personnel.
