The sustainable management of resources, energy, and the environment is the greatest challenge facing our society today. This is of particular concern to the packaging market. In recent years, major achievements have been made in the development of bio-plastics.
Two key product areas are identified here:
- Biodegradable materials
- Materials manufactured from renewable raw materials
A desired side effect, which should not be under-estimated, is the positive marketing impact of bio-plastics. Moreover, bio-plastics can be easily combined with standard market plastics to create multi-layer wall structures.
