Which kind of biopolymer is really sustainable?
Only an integral view of plastics from renewable raw materials shows whether they are really environmentally friendly. The expansion of cultivated areas for bio-based plastics, for example from sugar cane or corn, creates huge monocultures and thus causes natural habitat loss, species extinction, water shortage, desertification, and the use of dangerous pesticides.
Processing, performance and recycling
Biopolymers used in our production processes must not only meet ecological certification but also other requirements such as our technical standards and those of a modern, efficient packaging as well as being 100% recyclable.
Strict certification criteria for real sustainability
Therefore, we critically look at these raw materials and their environmental performance evaluations in regards to climate impact and biodiversity. And we at Jokey only want to use raw materials from renewable production that can provide internationally recognised certificates of origin and composition.
How much biopolymer is best suited for my product?
The possible proportion of biopolymers varies between 30 and 100 percent depending on the basic material of the biomass and the technical-physical requirements of your product. In our laboratories, we test in advance which basic material is suitable for your requirements and in what proportion.
