Fraunhofer at Green Week: Features Heat-resistant Corn Starch-derived PLA Biopolymers & Bio-tiles

Published on 2013-01-21. Author : SpecialChem

Even tiles can be organic — if they are made of renewable raw materials. They are more resource-efficient than their ceramic counterparts and unlock new creative options for design. Bioplastics made of polylactides (PLA) are becoming more heat-resistant, thereby making them suitable for high-temperature filling processes in the food industry as well. Fraunhofer researchers are exhibiting how renewable, biodegradable and biostable raw materials can be used in architecture, interior design and the packaging industry at this year's International Green Week in Berlin from January 18 to 27 (Hall 5.2a, Booth 103).
