Norner takes a role in our sustainable future with capability and competence in Biopolymers. Our high focus brings substantial value and increased speed to customer’s bioplastics projects. This is supported by broad industrial expertise in plastics from polymer properties to application performance.
We have hands on experience with biopolymers from recipe development. Our technology centre enable that the various aspects of these polymers can be tested like polymer. characterisation, compounding, processing, performance testing on standard specimens or packaging prototypes.
Strategic technical studies of the suitability of bio sources for polymers
Norner evaluates bio-polymerisation in a cost/complexity/benefit scenario
