Cereplast Introduces Compostable Bioplastics

Cereplast has introduced 11 new grades of Cereplast Compostables resins, according to a company press release.

The company cited increasing consumer demand for plastics solutions that are more sustainable and which rely less on petroleum, particularly in the wake of the BP oil spill.

“With price of oil rising and concerns about petroleum-based products, we can expect to see consumers and business alike drive the growth of bioplastics in a faster time frame,” said Chairman and CEO of Cereplast, Frederic Scheer.

Cereplast produces bioplastic resins for use in products ranging from tableware and cutlery to toys and healthcare/hygiene products, bottles/containers, bags, packaging, gift cards, printed displays, straws, even pipes, conduits, and other applications

Among the 11 new resins, Cereplast is producing plastics designed for use in bottles and containers, liners, bags, packaging, cups, plates, containers, boxes, trays, egg cartons, pipes, conduits and other uses. According to the company, the plastics represent both a sustainable manufacturing process and are biodegradeable. The company said the new resins will reduce landfill disposal and greenhouse gas emissions.

One thought on “Cereplast Introduces Compostable Bioplastics

  1. Just had a quick question RE the Resins that you describe in the products above–are these resins GMO based? I work for an eco-buying group–VivBizClub.com–based in SF. We also offer a host of <a href="http://vivbizclub.com/products/"biodegradable and compostable products and have recently conducted research on whether our bioplastics are GMO based. Just curious to know if the resin is made of something else besides corn.

    Thanks!
