Resumen:
Una empresa italiana especializada en distribuir productos químicos especiales empleados en diversas industrias busca un nuevo material biodegradable que pueda aplicarse en productos de bajo coste en mercados en los que la biodegradabilidad es un aspecto indispensable, por ejemplo, en el sector agrícola. El objetivo es desarrollar un material que combine un producto compostable/biodegradable, como PLA (polilactida), con biomasa vegetal, como lignina, obtenida de la producción de bioetanol. La empresa busca compañías o centros de investigación que trabajen con biopolímeros con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica.

Tittle:
Italian company distributing special chemical products wants to develop a new biodegradable material for low cost products
Summary:
An Italian company is interested in finding a new technology: new biodegradable material that could be used for low cost products on markets where biodegradability is a must, for example the agricultural sector. They are seeking companies or research centres working with biopolymers for a technical cooperation agreement, offering the technology for acquisition and supporting the transfer of the technology.
Description:
An Italian company offers and distributes a wide range of special chemical products utilized in several industries, through a technically and commercially qualified team.
Operative market segments: adhesives and sealants; rubber and technical items; lubricants; paints, varnishes and enamels; inks; plastics, thermoplastics and master-batches; refineries, chemical plants; textiles, leather, papers and auxiliary industries; cosmetic industries.
The Italian company wants to develop a new biodegradable material that could be used for low cost products on markets where biodegradability is a must, i.e agricultural activities.
The goal is the developing of a material produced combining a compostable / biodegradable product like PLA (polylactide) with a vegetable biomass, like lignine obtained by bioethanol production.
The reason of this project is the cost reduction for products that at present are obtained by petrochemical raw materials like polyolefines (polyethilene and polypropilene) with very lower cost against PLA or other biodegradable materials.
Often products like pots and coverage film for extensive cultivation are left on the ground and this is a damage for environmental equilibrium; on the other end the recovery of these product are often manual with high labour cost and a cost for treatment as waste.
The use of biodegradable or compostable material may be an ideal solution, but at present biodegradable or compostable materials are too expansive in comparison to the traditional plastics.
The Italian company is looking for European partners able to develop a new biodegradable / compostable material using PLA or other biodegradable polymers blended with a natural material like cellulosic fibers, lignine, organic biomass obtained like wastes from bioethanol or food production (i.e. tomatoes´ and potatoes´ skins, peanuts´ and coconuts shells, rice´ husk and so on).
The Italian company is looking for a partner able to provide a new technological solution based on a low cost biodegradable and/or compostable material to sign a technical cooperation agreement. The partner should be able to offer technical support to the Italian company with the purpose to transfer the new technology to it.
