Focus on: Bioplastics

Bioplastics are not always the same. One kind of bioplastics is based on renewable resources, the second one is biodegradable, others show both properties.

What is common to them, however, is their increasing importance in the market.

What Are Bioplastics?

RKW has studied various biopolymers for many years and thus has the corresponding experience in this field. There are already a number of bioplastics solutions which can significantly reduce the environmental impact. These also include the mulching film made of bioplastics which was developed by RKW in 2002.

We have repeatedly succeeded in developing new bioplastics from the most various raw materials. We have systematically tested biopolymers.

Bioplastics Already Used by RKW:

Bioplastics not necessarily implicate a benefit for the environment. Depending on the application, the benefit may vary and has to be evaluated on a case by case basis. 

We aim at advising our customers as well as possible regarding that complex topic and finding the most sustainable solution for each individual case.
