Bioplastics Solutionsfrom the idea to the finished product
Who we are BioApply Polymers is your one stop provider for your biomaterials based projects. • Founded in 2011. Based in Gland (VD) with industrial site in Büren a.A. (BE). Representative Offices in San Diego (US) and Dubai (UAE). • We combine forces of a polymer processing market leader and a pioneering bioproducts brand. • Proprietary and exclusive biocompound grades. • Product development, process engineering and prototyping.
The pain and the opportunity Clear opportunity for Sustainable Solution • Increasing bans & restrictive regulations (PVC, EVA, PE). • Existing Market for biodegradable products +30% / year. • Governments and corporations shift towards biomaterials. • End consumers demand biodegradable products or made from renewable sources. Vinyl chloride PVC causes liver and kidney issues, as well as brain damage. Up to Trillion plastic bags (PE) are used yearly worldwide. Up to 400 Years time for plastic (PE) products to degrade.
