Strong climate policy or freedom to consumers?
A recent article in The Conversation shows the undesirable results of a climate policy that lends its ears to public opinion. For consumers are at odds with themselves – in read more >> The post Strong climate policy or freedom to consumers? appeared first on Bio Based Press.
Addressing climate change with self-fertilizing crops
MIT in Boston (UsA) is one of the scientific centres developing initiatives to stop climate change. On April 11, it announced five flagship projects in its Climate Grand Challenges. Among read more >> The post Addressing climate change with self-fertilizing crops appeared first on Bio Based Press.
Chemistry vs. bacteria, # 71. The future of pharma in 3 acts, no.3. Towards a holistic approach
Until quite recently, professionals in healthcare tended to look upon body and mind as strictly separated therapeutic entities. And we still don’t treat them a being equal. The notion that read more >> The post Chemistry vs. bacteria, # 71. The future of pharma in 3 acts, no.3. Towards a holistic approach appeared first on […]
Thermal batteries that store solar and wind power
Thermal batteries are yet another way to store an excess of solar and wind power. According to the laws of physics, they would seem to incur major energy losses. But read more >> The post Thermal batteries that store solar and wind power appeared first on Bio Based Press.
Chemistry vs. bacteria, # 70. The future of pharma in 3 acts, no.2. The promises of biology
We already went into promises of biotechnology and of biological preparations (a.o. in no.54, If chemistry and biology join forces). Biology makes less progress than hoped for, and its successes read more >> The post Chemistry vs. bacteria, # 70. The future of pharma in 3 acts, no.2. The promises of biology appeared first on […]
Iron powder as an energy carrier
The contours of the future energy system haven’t yet been drawn with great precision. Solar and wind energies lie at its foundation. But these come with their problems: at times read more >> The post Iron powder as an energy carrier appeared first on Bio Based Press.
Chemistry vs. bacteria, # 69. The future of pharma in 3 acts, no. 1. More of the same
What does the future of pharma look like? So far, our task was easy, a description of history. Now things become much more difficult. There is a multitude of subjects read more >> The post Chemistry vs. bacteria, # 69. The future of pharma in 3 acts, no. 1. More of the same appeared first […]

LCA of PLA bottle solutions for extended shelf‑life (ESL) milk
LCA of PLA bottle solutions for extended shelf‑life (ESL) milk The dairy market is one of the most important sectors worldwide, and milk packaging contributes to over one-third of the global dairy packaging demand. The end of life of the PLA bottles is a critical stage of their life cycle, as demonstrated by the fact […]
PLA sorting for recycling
PLA sorting for recycling. Experiments performed at the National Test Centre Circular Plastics (NTCP) Bioplastic, if produced sustainably, can contribute to the transition to a circular economy, especially when these plastics are recycled as much as possible. BioPE and BioPET are automatically sorted and recycled together with fossil PE and PET in the current recycling […]
Plant-based bottles (PLA) vs. PET Bottles – Cradle-to-gate LCA and Implications
introduction: plant-based bottles vs. PET Bottles The global production of plastics exceeded 300 million tons in 2013 . A significant share of these plastics turns to solid waste and cause disposal problems since they are mostly non-degradable in the natural environment [1,2]. The disposal problem, jointly with other environmental concerns associated with petroleum-based plastics, has […]
ASTM standard D6400 This specification ASTM standard covers plastics and products made from plastics that are designed to be composted in municipal and industrial aerobic composting facilities. The properties in this specification are those necessary to determine whether plastics and products made from plastics will compost satisfactorily, including biodegradation at a rate comparable to known […]
Water and land footprint of bioplastics
Petroleum-based plastics production has increased from 15 million tonnes in 1964 to 311 million tonnes in 2014 and it is estimated double in the next 20 years. Plastics derived from fossil resources are causing different concerns, such as the greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), resource depletion, and rise of oil prices. These concerns with petroleum-based plastics […]
The fate of (compostable) plastic products
The fate of compostable plastic products in a full scale industrial organic waste treatment facility This research project has been carried out by Wageningen Food & Biobased Research commissioned and fundedby the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (EZK), in the context of ‘Praktijkonderzoekindustriële compostering’ (project number BO-43-012.02-066). For several years now, there […]
LCA study of PLA including Food Waste
LCA study of PLA including Food Waste. (rapport: LCA study of PLA Packaging including Food Waste.Ana Carolina Cruz Alarico – Chemical Engineering Department, Instituto Superior Tecnico, Lisbon, Portugal) The pressing need, in recent decades, to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and the amount of food waste destined for landfills, has led […]
PLA Bottle HPP treatment
PLA bottle HPP treatment Research rapport: Suitability Assessment of PLA Bottles for High-Pressure Processing of Apple Juice. The aim of the present PET – PLA bottle HPP treatment study is to assess the use of polylactic acid (PLA) bottles as an alternative to PET ones for high-pressure processing (HPP) of apple juice. The treatment of […]
PLA and the circular economy
PLA and the circular economy PLA and the circular economy, so-called “waste streams” and products at the end of their useful life form the basis for new ones products, instead of being thrown away. This lake comprehensive, sustainable approach replaces the linear one economy with a circular, biobased economy in which products are made from […]
Exploration of sorting and recycling PLA.
CE Delft rapport ” Verkenning uitsorteren en recyclen van bioplastic PLA – September 2019″ – Recycling PLA.Bioplastics fit well in a circular economy, especially if they are recycled as much as possible at the end of their lifespan (CE Delft, 2017a). Some bioplastics, such as bio-PET and bio-PE, are already partially recycled. They are also […]
our Plant-based packaging specialties: - PLA bottles - digesters
A machine that can compost food waste and bio-plastic within 24-48 hours into grey water. email us for more information.
This 23.5 gram preform with a 28mm neck has a light blue color and is suitable for bottles of 500ml.
Bottles For Juice
A plant-made bottle for a natural juice product is the ideal combination. A 38mm neck size will be available in the future.
Bottles for Milk
We were the first in the world to produce a PLA bottle for Dairy products. Possible in white and transparent.
Let's step away from fossil plastic into plant-based material for products and packaging. We can make the shift together.
