EDMONTON — On May 4, TerraVerdae Bioworks, a performance bioplastics company, announced the global introduction of a new line of PHA-based resins for customer evaluations. These new resin formulations are available in three versions: for blown/cast films, injection moulding and thermoforming. The launch of these products forms a milestone in TerraVerdae’s development effort to produce plastic resins that are not just biobased and biodegradable, but also, have requisite performance properties for customers to meet evolving material needs and sustainability goals.

“TerraVerdae is garnering global interest in its PHA biopolymer technology as jurisdictions and industries around the world actively work to reduce the impact of plastic waste,” said William Bardosh, President and CEO of TerraVerdae Bioworks Inc. “From oceans of plastics to unrecycled heaps of plastic waste and overflowing landfills, TerraVerdae’s technology offers a sustainable path for product manufacturers to develop high-performing yet compostable bioplastic materials that will reduce the build-up of petroleum-based plastic trash in the environment.”

PHA polymers are biobased, biodegradable, biocompatible and can be processed as thermoplastics into a range of end products. TerraVerdae’s PHA biopolymer technology is considered an alternative to non-sustainable plastics for a wide range of applications in the agri-food, packaging, personal care, forestry, coatings, adhesives and associated markets.
