Companies exploring potential synergies between BioLogiQ’s NuPlastiQ biopolymer and Dow’s polyethylene resin portfolio

Dow and BioLogiQ are working together to evaluate potential synergies between BioLogiQ’s NuPlastiQ BioPolymer, a thermoplastic plant-based resin, and Dow’s polyethylene resin portfolio, in an effort to explore enhanced sustainable plastic options.

“As a science-driven company, Dow is excited by the technical and environmental advantages that could be achieved by combining NuPlastiQ with Dow’s industry-leading polyethylene,” stated Tim Boven, recycling commercial director at Dow. “We are looking forward to learning more about NuPlastiQ and hope the collaboration will help us determine how these product combinations can benefit the market needs for the future.”

“Our mission at BioLogiQ is to provide a way to create plastic products made from renewable resources,” explained Brad LaPray, founder and president of BioLogiQ. “This evaluation will help us determine if there is an opportunity for Dow and BioLogiQ to work together in the future to offer new applications to our customers.”

The evaluation will help determine if NuPlastiQ is a potential fit with Dow’s business from performance, bio-based and commercial viability perspectives. During the next year, Dow and BioLogiQ will perform evaluations at Dow’s Pack Studios Development Center in Freeport, Texas and engage brands, research institutes and associations to evaluate the range of benefits from a combined offering.

Plastic Free World Conference & Expo 2019 will take place from Thursday 27 June to Friday 28 June, at the Kap Europa, Frankfurt Messe, Frankfurt, Germany.
