Building on 20 years of development activity, we produce an impressive range of high-performance bioplastics that meet our customers’ demands for both environmental and end-of-life performance. Based on renewable, natural resources, our products are 100% biodegradable and compostable, and suitable for the wide array of plastic processing, including injection moulding, sheet extrusion for thermoforming and vacuum forming, blown film, lamination, extrusion coating and monofilaments. Whether you want a product with high temperature performance or low viscosity, we are here to help.
Our BiomeHT range for moulding and thermoforming shows unrivalled heat resistance whilst being from a GM-free, sustainable source.
Our highly capable BioMesh non-woven materials offer tailored functional performance coupled with the eco-credentials of bio-resins.
BiomeCord for spun fibre and monofilaments provides a sustainably sourced and biodegradable alternative to polyamide resins.
BiomeEP for flims offers enhanced print and adhesion characteristics, enabling excellent print quality at high production speeds.
BiomeEasyFlow is perfect for extrusion coating to paper, board and film, providing a GM-free, biodegradable alternative to oil-based LDPE.
BiomeBioLam is designed for lamination within complex multilayered film structures with excellent barrier performance and interlayer adhesion.
High renewable content: We aim for the highest possible bio-based content in all of our products, reducing the use of non-renewable, oil-based resources.
Enhanced performance: We focus on the production of high performance biopolymers that offer a competitive alternative to conventional
Range of feedstocks: Our products use a range of natural feedstocks including potato starch, corn starch and cellulose. We look to use
GM-free materials wherever possible.
Biodegradable: All of our products are 100% biodegradable and compostable according to EN 13432, ASTM D6400 and Vinçotte OK compost standards.
Food safe: Our product range is both EU and FDA food contact approved.
The range and capability of our products are continually expanding. They are already in more places than you might imagine. In the next decade we will see bioplastics become part of our everyday lives.

Existing machinery: Our product ranges are developed to process on conventional machinery with no modifications required to existing equipment.
Lower temperature: Bioplastics typically require lower production temperatures, providing energy savings for the converter.
Recyclability: Production waste can be re-granulated and used with virgin material.
Productivity: Doing anything new requires a little learning. Our technical team provides support from the outset to optimise productivity.
