Biocomposites granules (wood-fibre biocomposite) offer the moldability of plastics, the strength and sustainability of wood, and result in a reduced CO2 footprint by up to 80%. Wood-fibre biocomposite granules can be used in traditional plastic converting processes such as injection molding or 3D-printing, and can be a potential fit for many applications across various industries, replacing a variety of plastic compositions while maintaining high quality and competitive pricing.
Wood Plastics Composites are a family of products consisting of a blend of wood fibers and polymers, which can be fossil, bio-based or recycled, providing an eco-friendly alternative to conventional plastics, while improving sustainability performance and reducing carbon footprint. Depending on the product grade, Wood Plastics Composites contain 30-50% FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood fibers and is available with bio-based polymers.
Priced similar to polypropylene and polystyrene, Biocomposites can be used as renewable alternatives to fossil-based plastics in numerous applications including furniture, storage, consumer goods, food contact plastic, and industrial components.
