Emballator launches bio-PP product Emballator (Ulricehamn, Sweden)) a leading producer of packaging solutions, and Borealis (Vienna, Austria)) are expanding their portfolio in close partnership. Borealis is providing Emballator with biobased polypropylene for pails and containers. The raw material is made from used and recovered residue vegetable oil and cooking oils. “For PE products it has been possible for many years to produce a product in biobased material but for PP, until now, it has only been possible to produce bio-PP based products from renewable resources with the ISCC PLUS certified mass balance principle. With this new grade the product contains at least 30 % biobased polypropylene,” says Richard Johansson, Sales and Marketing Manager at Emballator Lagan. The packaging produced by Emballator is 100 % recyclable as PP create a circular solution, that reduces the carbon footprint further. “At Borealis, we continue to re-invent our circular product portfolio for more sustainable living. This partnership with Emballator is another step in our commitment to renewable/biobased products that significantly reduce the carbon footprint of packaging,” says Trevor Davis, Global Commercial Director, Consumer Products. “With Borealis as a partner we significantly lower our carbon footprint, while maintaining the existing quality standards of our product.” says Richard Johansson. MT | Danimer Scientific and Total Corbion PLA collaborate Danimer Scientific (Bainbridge, GA, USA) and Total Corbion PLA (Gorinchem, The Netherlands), both leading bioplastics companies focused on the development and production of biodegradable materials, recently announced that they have entered into a long-term collaborative arrangement for the supply of Luminy ® PLA. As Danimer continues to scale up the commercial production of Nodax ® , its signature polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), this agreement enhances Danimer’s ability to fulfil customer needs for resins that require a blend of PLA- and PHA-based inputs. Stephen E. Croskrey, Chairman and CEOof Danimer, said, “While growing commercial production of PHA remains the focus of our business, PLA is a part of some compounds that we formulate to meet specific customers’ functionality needs for different applications. Teaming with Total Corbion PLA provides an ideal solution to support our long-term growth strategy while ensuring our short-term customer needs remain fulfilled.” Danimer works with each of its customers to develop customized formulas for biobased resins that meet biodegradability and functionality expectations. Blending various inputs, such as PHA and PLA, enables Danimer to expand the applications of its materials across a number of different industries. Total Corbion PLA is a 50/50 joint venture between TotalEnergies and Corbion focused on the manufacturing and marketing of Luminy PLA resins. Thomas Philipon, Chief Executive Officer of Total Corbion PLA, said, "The biopolymers market is experiencing strong growth, and customers are requesting innovative solutions tailor-made to their market needs. In today’s dynamic market, strategic arrangements throughout the value chain are key to ensuring security of supply in both product and technology that will allow brand owners and ultimately consumers to be comfortable with selecting bioplastics as a sustainable alternative to traditional plastics."
