Silver sponsors 2018

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.
