Fiber Additives for Biodegradable Packaging Materials

BioPowder.com offers natural and sustainable filler and fiber materials for biodegradable packaging solutions. We proud ourselves in providing innovative micro-powders with versatile uses, for example

Most packaging for food, personal care items and other products of daily use is made of plastics, i.e. polymers or compounds with a varying degree of recyclability. Our mission is to help manufacturers create packaging materials with a reduced environmental impact.

Solutions for Waste-Free Packaging

The packaging industry has long relied on petroleum-derived plastics to create inexpensive single-use packaging. In times of zero-waste campaigns and awareness about the enormous damage of microplastics, the market is changing in favor of sustainable alternatives.

At BioPowder.com, we facilitate environmental innovation with customized additives, whatever the application may be. Our powders are can be blended into polymers for any type of packaging, from fine films/foils to bulkier containers. Similar to wood powder, hemp fibres or other commonly used reinforcement additives, they mainly consist of lignin and cellulose. They combine excellent particle stability with a light weight and a bright color spectrum.

As a major portion of plastic waste is caused by packaging, degradable packaging materials can make a considerable difference. BioPowder.com supports you in minimizing your environmental footprint.

Unique Benefits of BioPowder.com Packaging Additives

We make sure that the highest standards of human and environmental sustainability are met. This means that relying on plant-based raw materials alone is not enough. In contrast to grain flours or starch, our powders are made exclusively from side stream materials, not crops.

Ecological advantages in a nutshell:

  • Extreme resource efficiency: no plantations are required, processing is purely mechanical and free from chemicals
  • Optimized climate footprint: regionally sourced second-generation feedstock only
  • Non-competition with the food chain for the use of land and water

The use of BioPowder.com sustainable powders in biodegradable plastic packaging facilitates innovation paired with the following functional advantages:

  • Proven aptitude for different production processes such as injection molding, extrusion, film blowing and filament creation
  • Variable water absorption capabilities: hydrophilic as well as hydrophobic (surface-treated) options are available
  • Customized micron ranges and particle stability: reliable texture, dispersion behaviour and rheology
  • Low density: ideal for lightweight applications such as biodegradable food packaging materials

We help you bring truly sustainable packaging products to life! Please let us know about your project and we will offer you the right filler or fiber additive. Any volumes can be manufactured and shipped to your destination of choice.

If you have something else in mind, we can help you select the natural ingredients that integrate best with your formulation.
