Environmentally-friendly packaging is not just about recycling. The production process and raw materials can also boost the sustainability of packaging. Bio-based plastics enable the development of greener packaging solutions with enhanced performance. Depending on the polymer, packaging can be durable for re-use (e.g. crates) or compostable for single-use packaging applications (e.g. films).
Polybutylene succinate (PBS) is a biodegradable material which can be derived from Biosuccinium®. Its derivatives have applications in packaging, containers, caps and closures. Reverdia works with value chain partners to facilitate these innovative materials.
