Bioplastics

It is possible to get the packages in Bioplastic.

Kempartner offers in cooperation with the Swedish manufacturers of plastics raw material from controlled sugar plants and producers, instead of crude oil in all bottles. It's good for the next generation.


With volatile oil prices and growing concerns about greenhouse gas emissions, the chemical industry is looking for renewable alternatives to diversify its sources of raw materials. Sugarcane ethanol has emerged as an important ingredient to substitute for petroleum in the production of plastic. These so-called “bioplastics” have the same physical and chemical properties as regular plastic (the most common type is known technically as PET) and maintain full recycling capabilities.

Benefits of Bioplastics
  • Renewable. Sugarcane polyethylene replaces 30 percent or more of the petroleum that would otherwise be used to manufacture the plastic.

  • Lower carbon footprint. Each metric ton of bio - polyethylene produced avoids the emission of 2 to 2.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide on a lifecycle basis.Use of bioplastics is still developing. But a number of leading companies have established themselves as major players in this emerging area.
