Bemis Company announced today that it will work with Australian company Plantic Technologies to develop biodegradable packaging.
Bemis, headquartered in the US, will work with Plantic to develop flexible packaging materials based on Plantic’s bioplastic resin using high-amylose corn starch.
They will collaborate in the development of resins that can be blown into packaging and functional films for use in the Americas targeting personal care and dry goods applications.
The agreement will also aid Bemis’ aim of providing sustainable solutions throughout the lifecycle of packaging materials.
Henry Theisen, Bemis president and chief operating officer, said: “While sustainability is desirable, consumers don’t want to give up the convenience and safety offered by current packaging.”
He added: “The Plantic partnership will provide material options that further encourage long-term sustainability and responsibility without sacrificing the quality and functionality our customers have come to expect from Bemis films.”
Grant Dow, chief executive officer of Plantic Technologies, said: “This agreement with Bemis further expands the existing market potential for Plantic renewably sourced polymer technology.
“The new films will bring to the market flexible packaging applications with a very high content of renewable resources.”
He added: “Bemis’ industry-leading technology, market access and outstanding reputation for innovation make them the ideal partner for accelerating Plantic’s application development in the flexible packaging film market.”
