Our expertise in BIOPLASTICS
Starch is an amazing and very versatile material, making it an important base for modern bioplastics. In the production of bioplastics, AGRANA uses its many years of expertise in the production and processing of starch and supplements this with the knowledge of the needs of the plastics industry.
AGRANa’s bioplastic AGENACOMP shows that it is possible to use the functionalization of biomaterials to allow the incorporation of significant amounts of starch into bioplastic formulations.
AGENACOMP allows the use of films less than 15 μm on standard polymer equipment.
With the AMITROPLAST product family, AGRANA provides a user-friendly thermoplastic starch for extrusion, film blowing, injection molding and 3D printing.
AMITROPLAST products allow users to incorporate significant amounts of thermoplastic starch and thus, to create tailor-made polymer compounds that are processable by using standard polymer equipment and capable of adding extra value to innovative products.
