For years, Eco green has worked with plastics manufacturers and product designers to make products that help consumers contribute to a more sustainable world, and now offers a line of biocomposites combining natural fibers and Braskem’s I’m Green Polyethylene.
Terratek Biocomposites are designed to meet the rapidly growing consumer demand for more sustainable plastic products. The biocomposites are made with more than 90 percent renewable feedstocks. They can be produced using a variety of natural fibers and agricultural byproducts including wood, corn cob, hemp or wheat stalk. Custom formulations can be developed to meet the specific value propositions for a product or market segment.
Terratek Biocomposites combine these natural fibers with Braskem’s I’m Green Polyethylene (PE) to create a strong, durable biocomposite. Terratek biocomposites can deliver a wide range of physical characteristics with a lighter environmental footprint compared to petroleum-based plastics. The natural fibers provide strength and durability to the plastic and add a unique natural aesthetic to enhance product differentiation.
The biobased I’m Green PE from Braskem is made from ethanol – a renewable and sustainable resource produced from Brazilian sugarcane. The cultivation of sugarcane removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and releases oxygen, which means the material has a negative carbon footprint
Eco green produces Terratek Biocomposites at its Kansas plant. Pellets are optimized for injection molding, profile or sheet extrusion.
