Biopolymers

Main advantages of biopolymers

Biodegradable

Derived from natural resources or oil resources, PBS and PBAT is compostable into biomass, carbon dioxide and water (according EN13432).

Products made from Tunhe’s PBS and PBAT can be disposed of along with organic waste.

Tunhe’s PBS and PBAT have no adverse effects on the environment and is naturally compostable, without requiring a specialized composting facility.

Biobased

BiobasedTunhe’s portfolio compromises a biobased PBS which is made from caster oil out of beans from the Ricinus plant.

Food-approved

All biodegradable polymers of Tunhe’s (biobased PBS and PBAT) have European Food Approval according EU10/2011. Therefor they are suited for food packaging applications.

Conventional processing equipment

Processing Tunhe’s biodegradable polymers does not require special equipment; they can be applied in current extrusion coating machines, blown film extruders, and injection molding machines.
