This is the world’s production in 2016 vs. only 1 million tons of bio-based plastics.
The average recycling rate worldwide now stands at about 14%.
The production of plastics is one of the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions.
Pollution associated with plastics
is present in all the world’s major ocean basins and an additional 5 to 13 million tons are dumped into the oceans each year.
Some chemicals found in plastics
are considered to be endocrine disrupters that interfere with human hormonal functions.
90% of plastics can be replaced with bio-based polymers.
The dilemma with
Non-competitive cost, too high against plastics. Insufficient supply volume. In general, bioplastics, have not proven their economic and environmental viability on a large scale, based on the traditional industrial model.
of raw material prices
Limit cost control, making it difficult to compete with plastics and preventing the offer of long-term price guarantees.
The current use
of food-grade land
Allocated to the feedstock production for biopolymers in industrial applications, has raised ethical concerns and problems in the use of local resources.
The succession of fragmented and
uncoordinated industrial sectors
Prevent a real impact on a large scale and are economically uncompetitive, compared to plastics in the market.
