It involves the development and manufacture of a bottle made 100% from sugarcane, which is biodegradable and compostable to ensure the planet’s sustainability. The official presentation will be made in a round table under the name “Sustainable Packaging for Healthy Foods”, which will take place this Thursday, at 7:50 p.m. in Marina de Empresas.
Moderated by the journalist Estefanía Pastor, Companies Section Chief at Valencia Plaza, José Manuel Suárez, CEO of ADBioplastics, and Aniceto Francés, CTO of Heis Global, will participate in this gathering. “We have supplied our known PLA-Premium Bioplastic and specifically the B 5100 grade, through the blown injection technique. We are very satisfied with the final result” has explained Mr. Suárez. The tests have been done at the Heis Global facilities. This company, located in Biar (Alicante), is a biodegradable packaging manufacturer for the pharmaceutical and nutritional industries according to GMPs and within ISO6 cleanroom.
With this case of success, both companies want to highlight the advantages of staking on the circular economy, in the productive processes of companies and more specifically, for the use of bioplastics to make a greener planet. The ADBioplastics product is not only biodegradable but compostable, which means that it breaks downs at 90% in just six months, becoming CO2, water and water, under industrial conditions. It complies with the requirement set by the European Union (European Standard EN-13432 – 2000) and that can help packaging manufacturers fulfill with uropean regulations, which will enter into force in 2021 and 2030, at the same time they take care of the environment.
