interpack Preview KINGFA SCI. & TECH. CO., LTD is Asia’s largest and first stock-market listed company in the modified plastics industry. ECOPOND ® 100% biodegradable plastics developed by Kingfa with independent intellectual property rights is up to internationally most stringent standard: EN13432, ASTM 6400 and AS 4736. Besides, Ecopond has successfully passed tests (OWS, Belgium) to prove that Ecopond leave no toxic material after it is fully degraded under the action of microorganisms. Potential applications comprise: Green packaging: shopping bag, food wrap film Organic waste collection: trash bag, leaf & yard bag Catering: One off tablewares Agriculture: mulching film/string At interpack Kinfga will exhibit PLA-based Ecopond Flex- 262&Flex-64D; Starch-based Ecopond Flex-162; 100% biodegradable and compostable shopping bag, trash bag, one-off tableware and agricultural mulching film and string made from Ecopond. Ecopond is 100% biodegradable and compostable. It can be processed on traditional PE blown film and processing machines. The material show controlled storage and shelf life and offers excellent mechanical property, ideal for film blowing/vacuum forming/cast molding. 9D13 Innovia Films is a major international producer with production sites in the UK, USA, Belgium and Australia. Innovia’s transparent, metallised and coloured films are sold to converters, brand-owners and end-users around the globe. They become part of the packaging, labelling or overwrap solution for some of the world’s best known brands across a wide variety of everyday consumer goods including confectionery, perfume, cheese, tea, shampoo, tobacco, soft drinks and biscuits. NatureFlex is Innovia’s award winning, compostable, cellulose-based film, which will be showcased alongside the full range of substrates. The focus of Innovia Films at this year’s Interpack is on two signature brands of NatureFlex and Propafilm and how the six key themes of Barrier, Compostable, Digital, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Renewable and Seal Integrity relate to these. The spotlight will also be on Innovia’s increased BOPP coating capacity, environmental improvements since the introduction of their new cellulose production line in 2009 and the launch of the new corporate website with added functionality 09G03 In line with their strategic vision of becoming the world leader in sustainable chemicals by 2020, Brasilian company Braskem will present at Interpack its line of I’m green biopolymers. These 100% renewable source polyolefins show a very favorable carbon footprint throughout the entire production cycle. With excellent technical performance and processability, these biopolymers can be used to make packaging for food, cosmetics, personal care and cleaning products, as well as other uses, with significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in all these applications. In September 2010, the the leading producer of thermoplastic resins in the Americas and world’s largest producer of biopolymers inaugurated a green polyethylene plant in Triunfo, Rio Grande do Sul with production capacity of 200,000 tonnes per year. Braskem’s green polypropylene plant with capacity of 30,000 tonnes/year is scheduled to start production in 2013. 10D88 30 bioplastics MAGAZINE [02/11] Vol. 6

interpack Preview Grace Biotech Corporation will introduce its GRABIO range of product lines. Grabio uses a unique and innovative biochemical technology method to create biodegradable and compostable starch plastics from renewable resource material. The new Grabio extruding grade materials can be used to produce agriculture products such as seedling pots, seedling trays, plant pot etc. by thermoforming. These products are completely compostable. Furthermore, the biodegradation will not leave any residue or toxic effects in soil or plants. Grabio biodegradable agriculture products can save farmers a great deal of time, labour and expense in the retrieval and disposal of discarded mulch and pots. Grabio film grade material for bags and other film products conforms to EN 13432 and ASTM D6400 compostable standards, and had received Aib Vincotte and DIN Certco compostable certificates. With its good physical strength and easy to process features, Grabio film product is a good replacement alternative to conventional plastic bags in the fast emerging global trend of plastic bag ban. 9F06 Folienwerk Wolfen GmbH (FWG), Germany, as a manufacturer of custom-made rigid polyester films started manufacturing PLA (polylactic acid) films as early as in 2003. The optical properties of their films made from this biodegradable polymer produced from renewable sources can easily compete with other polyesters, and experts at FWG are conducting extensive research to further improve the thermal and mechanical stability of PLA films. But there is more to biopolymers than just PLA. In collaboration with their suppliers FWG have developed films from a range of biopolymers for lots of individual applications. 09J26 bioplastics MAGAZINE [06/11] Vol. 6 31
