AGRANA´s recent developments in bioplastics demonstrate that it is possible to apply technical starch in significant amounts in bioplastic formulations. The products enable film materials of less than 15 μm thickness on standard polymer equipment. It allows to produce manifold products for everyday life and closes the circle from cradle to cradle.
The usage of the locally available, renewable and GMO-free raw material “starch” adds significant value to the regional agriculture and farmers´ families. It is resource efficient and avoids losses during the conversion from raw material to final product. And it closes the circle by organic recycling and promotes home-compostability without any micro-plastic residues.
