About the project

The project concept envisages industrial processing of corn into 100% decomposable biopolymer using a unique innovative technology of triple nanopolymerization, which allows to obtain a biocompound (or bioplastic) with high physicomechanical properties and a controlled period of biological destruction.

Technical parameters of biopolymer

 

BIOC bioplastic is a biologically based plastic granular material (with a content of modified corn starch of 50-75%), which undergoes triple copolymerization and undergoes 100% biodegradation.

Depending on the percentage of individual components, can be divided into brands of bioplastics used for the production of certain types of plastic products.

About the product

path1747.png

1.26 - 1.3 g/cm³ - density
(ISO 1183)

50-60 D - hardness
(ASTM-D2240)

2-4 г/10 min - melt consumption 190°C, 2.16 kg (ISO 1133)

95-150°C - melting range

(ASTM-D3418)

260°C - thermal decomposition temperature (ASTM-D6370)

BIOC advantages

• The content of corn starch in the final product is more than 50%

• Complete processing chain from corn from the field to the biocompound

• Variable term of biological decomposition of bioplastics and final products

• Possibility of easy replacement of plastic granules with BIOC bioplastic granules

• A wide range of applications of end products

The use of biopolymers

g2881-9.png
 

Impact on the environment

Polymer waste is one of the main problems of the XXI century. Every year, every Ukrainian uses about 500 plastic bags. At the same time, according to statistics, the average duration of use of such a package is 12 minutes, and such a package decomposes up to 200 years or 105,120,000 minutes.

The problem to be solved

The only alternative to replacing "petroleum" plastic is the use of biopolymers, which allow to produce goods with the same physical and mechanical properties, but in natural conditions dissolve in carbon dioxide, water, mineralized salt in a much shorter time.

The project forms a new concept of plastic handling in Ukraine: NOT the ban on the use of plastic, which has become part of everyday life, but its replacement with BIOPLASTIC - an innovative, environmentally friendly and practical material for the production of most types of "plastic" products.

Concept

World map

Under modern conditions, complete abandonment of plastic is almost impossible. Of the 197 countries in the world, only about 44% have restrictions on the use of plastic:

Topicality

At the end of 2019, Ukraine adopted in the first reading the draft Law on Restrictions on the Circulation of Plastic Packages in Ukraine № 2051-1 of September 18, 2019, which is the first step towards limiting the use of oil-based plastics in our country.
