Perstorp hikes capacity for biodegradable plastics market

PERSTORP, SWEDEN: The market for biodegradable plastics is growing rapidly, driven by consumer demand as well as public regulations and recommendations. Mainly used in packaging and in agriculture, biodegradable plastics are defined as plastics that are quickly and easily broken down by naturally occurring microorganisms.

“Perstorp is committed to supporting the growing demand in biodegradable plastics using Capa Thermoplastics and has recently invested in making these competitive products available in large volumes,” said Hakan Bjornberg, Director, Market Development, Perstorp.

Perstorp’s Capa Thermoplastics are ideal products for formulating biodegradable plastics, based on their possibilities to optimize the level of degradability and mechanical properties of bioplastics. Capa Thermoplastics are widely studied, for their biodegradability as well as easy processing and added performance given in formulations of other plastics. The biodegradability of Capa Thermoplastics comes from the unique chemical structure of Capa polymer that allows it to break down quickly. Capa Thermoplastics blend well with many other polymers.
