Renewed Vigour

Lameplast's entire range can now be moulded in bioplastic

The future of packaging? It's green! After launching the first injection molded single-dose in green polyethylene (bio-PE), the Lameplast Group is now able to offer a full range of bioplastic containers made from raw vegetal materials as an alternative to those made from oil-based plastic. Bioplastic is a 100% renewable source unlike oil-based plastics.

Is your product "green"?

Using these new plastics, Lameplast is in the midst of implementing many years of study aimed at developing fully biodegradable materials. Based on initial positive feedback, the bio-polymers can now be used to make single-dose and multidose containers for many cosmetics and personal care products.

Why use bioplastics?

Unlike traditional plastics, green polyethylene is not made from oil but from ethanol obtained from sugar cane. The result is a unique product with the same technical characteristics, appearance and versatility as traditional fossil-based polyethylene, as well as many other benefits:

  • It's sustainable: Sugar cane crops used by Braskem for the production of green polyethylene fulfil the highest sustainability standards around as defined in the Braskem Code of Conduct.

  • It's renewable: Green polyethylene (PE) is made from ethanol obtained from GMO-free sugar cane grown in Brazil - a renewable raw material!
  • It helps reduce: The new range of bioplastics used can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Sugar cane captures and holds CO2 from the atmosphere during every growth cycle, contributing to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
  • It can be recycled: The new bioplastic is 100% recyclable. At the end of its lifespan, green polyethylene can be recycled in the same chains already developed for conventional PE.

All of the bioplastic used by the Lameplast Group is "I'M GREEN™ POLYETHYLENE", created by Braskem and is distributed by FKuR Kunststoff GmbH.
