Controlled Degrading Bioplastics

Controlled Degrading Bioplastics

Scion has developed approaches to formulating thermoplastics based on bio-derived materials that allows for customised degradation rates. This can be achieved by the addition of biomass and other additives to the plastic during its manufacture. The technology can be used with existing manufacturing technologies. The biomass that can be utilised can be from a wide range of sources.

Objective

Scion is seeking licensees for its existing range of bio-plastic formulations and for companies in need of customised bio-plastics with specific degradation characteristics to work with Scion to develop customised products.
