Bioplastics supplier FKuR Kunststoff GmbH will present a wide variety of biodegradable and biobased plastics for various packaging applications at Fachpack 2012, to be held in Nuremberg, Germany from September 25-27.

“Nature is our role model for packaging solutions,” says Patrick Zimmermann, Director of Marketing & Sales at FKuR. In addition to the product lines Bio-Flex for flexible packaging and Biograde for rigid packaging, FKuR will present its “Green PE” compounds under the brand name Terralene for the first time at a Germany trade show.

FKuR is the exclusive European distributor of Braskem, a Brazil-based biopolymer manufacturer that produces PE with sugarcane. By using this renewable raw material, FKuR says production of one ton of “Green PE” captures up to 2.4 tons of CO₂ from the atmosphere and therefore helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition, “Green PE” and Terralene are 100% compatible with regular polyethylene and show identical properties. All materials can also be utilized in existing recycling streams.
