BioFoam Packaging (EPLA)

BioFoam Packaging (EPLA)

BioFoam is a new patented foam that is comparable to Airpop (EPS-expanded polystyrene). It looks similar in structure and has more or less the same properties as Airpop. The major difference is that Airpop is made of polymers that are based on fossil raw materials (a finite resource). The raw material for BioFoam consists of biopolymers, which are made of vegetable materials (an infinite resource). This makes BioFoam the first foam to have an organic base. The consequence is that BioFoam, like Airpop, can be reused. In addition, it is biodegradable and it can be industrially composted at high temperatures under the influence of moisture and bacteria. BioFoam is durable and is suitable for long-term use in virtually all technical and packaging applications
