Cereplast creates a wide range of biobased, compostable and sustainable bioplastic resins to meet surging consumer and industrial demand for alternatives to traditional plastics.
Cereplast Compostables® resins are made from renewable resources and are ecologically sound substitutes for fossil fuel-based plastics, replacing nearly 100% of the petroleum-based additives used in traditional plastics. The resins are starch-based and gluten-free, made from corn, tapioca and potato starches that primarily come from the American Midwest. Cereplast Compostables resins are used for single-use disposables and packaging including cups, straws, cutlery, and bags. Cereplast Compostables resins are biodegradable and compostable in the United States and Europe meeting the ASTM D6400 or EN 13432 standards for compostability. Many grades have BPI and/or DIN Certco certification.
Cereplast Sustainables® resins are biobased, replacing up to 95%+ of the petroleum content used in traditional plastics. The resins are suitable for durable applications and can be used in a range of markets including automotive, consumer goods, fashion accessories, consumer electronics, medical packaging, cosmetics packaging, toys, furniture, office supplies, home accessories, and construction. The Cereplast Sustainables family includes the Cereplast Bio-polyolefins® grades (formerly named Cereplast Hybrid Resins®), which provide a lower carbon footprint compared to conventional resins.
