Biobased and compostable polymers

Norner has developed an extensive competence in Biopolymers, Compostable plastics and other Green chemistry.

Bioplastics can be either biobased and/or compostable. Some materials can be both produced from bio-based raw materials and be bio-degradable like polylactic acid (PLA). Others can be from bio-sourced raw materials like BioPE but are not biodegradable.

There are several polymers available in these categories and Norner have practical experience with several of these through our client and funded projects.

Our high focus brings substantial value and increased speed to customer’s bioplastics projects.  

We offer

  • Hands on experience with biopolymers from development, processing and testing.
  • Scientists with direct experience in biopolymers. 
  • A technology centre where the various aspects of a polymer can be tested like: polymer. characterisation, compounding, processing, performance testing on standard specimens or on our s packaging prototypes.
  • Broad industrial expertise in plastics from polymer properties to application performance.
  • In depth technology and market studies on BIO materials for international FMCG companies.

Client studies and Research programmes 

  • Norner performs strategic technical studies of the suitability of bio sources for polymers.
  • Norner evaluates bio-polymerisation in a cost/complexity/benefit scenario.
  • Bio polymers as neat solutions or as composites are studied versus end applications.
  • Conversion to end products and documentation of end use performance of biopolymer.
  • Development of new and enhanced properties and applications for biopolymers.
