Our exhibitors 2019:

Arctic Biomaterials (ABM) has developed bio-based and degradable glass reinforced composite materials (ArcBiox TM). These materials break today’s boundaries in terms of temperature resistance and mechanical performance for bio-based materials. The ABM Composite material is produced with LFT (long fibre) technology. What makes the glass reinforcement unique is that it is also degradable and the composite is certified with the Seedling mark (DinCerto).

In mechanical performance the ArcBioX materials offer alternatives to several oil based technical plastics for demanding technical applications e.g. glass reinforced polyamide
Customers have now possibilities to decrease their carbon footprint and find sustainable solutions.

ABM is able to offer alternatives to PP, PE, PS, ABS and PC-ABS materials. In addition, ABM has developed a biomaterial where temperature resistance HDTb is 96°C without need for hot mould or long cycle time.

ADBioplastics is a startup dedicated to the development and commercial exploitation of custom-made BIOplastics, a strong alternative to save the planet replacing the traditional plastic based on fossil fuels and very polluting.

The material is BIObased + BIOdegradable. From the origin because they are produced by corn, sugar cane, and sugar beet to biodegradable.

Our add value is that our material is also compostable. The material goes down by 90% within six months in an industrial composting process. This one will help our target, packaging manufacturers in the food sector to fulfill the EU´s Strategy of plastic reduction by 2030 as well as contribute to make the world a better place to live, our leitmotiv.

AGRANA produces and offers a range of special types of thermoplastic starches (AMITROPLAST®) and bioplastic compounds (AGENACOMP®). AMITROPLAST and AGENACOMP demonstrate that it is possible to apply technical starch in significant amounts in bioplastic formulations. The products enable film materials of less than 15 μm thickness on standard polymer equipment and manifold products for everyday life, from cradle to cradle.

The usage of the locally available, renewable and GMO-free raw material “starch” adds significant value to the regional agriculture and farmers´ families. It is resource efficient and avoids losses during the conversion from raw material to final product. And it closes the circle by organic recycling and promotes home-compostability without any micro-plastic residues.

AGRANA is a key producer of special starch products. With more than 9000 employees in total, AGRANA is also the global leader in fruit preparations, a major producer of fruit juice concentrates and sugar in Europe.

At BASF, we create chemistry for a sustainable future. We combine economic success with environmental protection and social responsibility.
