Corbion Purac showcasing packaging and serviceware innovations in biobased PLA
Corbion Purac will be exhibiting at the Interpack trade fair in Dusseldorf within the Bioplastics In Packaging (BIP) pavilion. Together with key industry partners, Corbion Purac will be showcasing packaging and serviceware applications made from both standard PLA and high heat PLA. The team will be welcoming visitors in Hall 9, stand G11.
Corbion Purac's partners at Interpack include Huhtamaki - a global leader in sustainable foodservice packaging, Innovia - a leading global producer of speciality high performance films, Synbra - leading producer of ePLA foam, Yangtze Labre - manufacturer of filaments and non-wovens, and WinGram - PLA converter of films, serviceware and packaging.
On display will be a range of applications, including the latest high heat applications based on performance lactides from Corbion Purac. These include single-use hot drink cups and lids and full stereo-complex transparent film, which offers opportunities for both food and non-food applications. In addition to final applications, Corbion Purac will also be displaying their PLA resin and compound partnerships, for those interested in developing their own bioplastic products. These include Hisun, SUPLA, Biotec and FKuR.
Combining high biocontent with a low carbon footprint, PLA is a great replacement for PS, PP and ABS. Furthermore, as demonstrated by the range of applications on show, PLA is an extremely adaptable material that can be processed on existing equipment, with commercially acceptable cycle times. This offers converters and brandowners a unique opportunity to be a sustainability frontrunner in their field, for both their products and their packaging.
