Tittle:
Applied research and development using renewable raw materials for bio-based plastics
Summary:
A German research institute offers research and development for bioplastics material, bioplastics compounding and bioplastics processing using renewable resources. This topic comprises plastics derived from biomass as well as biodegradable plastics. Applications are in plastics processing, packaging, agriculture, forest, consumer and automotive industry. Partners from industry and research are sought to jointly implement new processes and materials within technical or research collaboration.
Description:
A German research institute develops applied and custom-made solutions in the fields of environmental and process engineering, material and energy technology. Assuming a leading position the institute is committed to sustainable development, environmentally friendly technologies and innovative approaches designed to improve the standard of living and to promote the economy´s innovative capacity.

Their department dealing with bio-based plastics is focused on polymer chemistry, material development, plastics processing, applications, and industrial scale-up of novel bio-plastics. Here they develop and optimize bio-based plastics, technical processes for the production and processing of applied-orientated, bio-based plastics and bring them into plastics applications. They have more than ten years of experience in the development of tailor-made bio-plastics compounds. The scientists and engineers use raw biopolymers, like PLA, CA, or PHA, and combine them in a twin-screw compounding process with plasticizers, fillers, additives and, if appropriate, other polymers to develop specific blends that meet the customers´ needs. Their material development focuses especially on demand, with the intent that the product can be used on standard plastics-processing machinery. A couple of bio-based plastics developed at this institute are successful on the market in film, extrusion and injection moulding applications in fields like packaging, cases and houses and structural components. The institute and its industrial partners are continuously investigating novel and innovative bio-based plastics compounds.

The R-Y-D carried out comprises:
· Development of new bio-based monomers and plastics
· Material and product development
· Plastics processing development
· Small scale and pilot series manufacturing of plastics compounds and products
· Polymer analyses and material testing
· Certified testing of biodegradability of substances, materials and residues
· Market and feasibility studies, technological assessments

The equipment covers laboratory and testing facilities, kneaders and laboratory compounding extruders, and industrial plastics processing lines (e.g. compounding, extrusion, injection moulding)
Advantages and Innovations:
· Competitive lead by innovative materials
· Scientific backing of research and development
· Flexible production and prototyping
· Fast realization of projects
· Fast material testing and evaluation of test results, preparation of independent expert reports
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
IPs:
