Scion has developed approaches to formulating thermoplastics based on bio-derived materials that allow for customized 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 utilized can be from a wide range of sources.

Key Benefits

  • Marketing advantage as a sustainably derived material
  • Potentially can be composted at home
  • Potentially can be composted at home
  • Plastic can be designed to degrade in a certain time for specific purposes

Target Applications

  • Food packaging and consumer wrappings where biodegradability would add advantage
