Biobased extrusion blow-mould bottle developed in Europe

European food producer Polenghi has developed Europe’s first extrusion-blow-molded biobased bottle, using Ingeo bioplastic made from renewable plant material.

By switching from polyolefin resin to bioplastic, the company will conserve 1,000 barrels of oil and reduce CO2 emissions by 126 tons compared to an equivalent oil based plastic squeeze bottle.

The resin manufacturing process emits 38% less CO2 and consumes 45% less energy than the conventional low-density polyethylene production.
