Bio-Mi Product Line

Thermoplastics include many different types of plastics commonly used in packaging, food packaging, children’s toys, medical devices, agro-industry and many other consumer and industrial products/sectors.


Bio-Mi develops new, sustainable thermoplastic materials that can compete with a wide range of petroleum-based plastics developed 70 years ago. Nowadays, industrial-scale transformers and consumers expect the same qualities and capability of use from the new generation of materials, produced from renewable and from biomass sources.


In response to these requirements, Bio-Mi’s objective is to be the supplier of bioplastics with a wide range of alternative solutions, offering a variety of unprocessed bioplastic materials and standard or customised bioplastic compounds.

Sustainable thermoplastic materials

Bio-Mi has focused, from the very beginning, its activities on research and development of bio-based, biodegradable and compostable materials that can be converted into finished and semi-finished products with a very clear "end of life" of each application obtained from that material.


Sustainable thermoplastic materials can be divided into two groups: bio-based and biodegradable plastics and recyclable materials. Bio-Mi places special emphasis on bio-based and biodegradable plastics, i.e. our “MI” family of materials that includes different ratios and types of biopolymers that are commercially available. However, as prime (pure) material, they can’t be processed, and final products made from prime materials lack the right properties and therefore they should be functionalized, i.e. compatible into blends or blends whose formulation provides better mechanical and barrier properties to the final product.

 

1) Bio-based and biodegradable plastics
• Bioplastics with high bio-based content (40%-100%)
• Can be used in both blown and cast extrusion and injection and blow moulding
• Possible applications in the packaging and food packaging sector, agro-sector (mulch films, agro films).

 

Bio-Mi is developing several different formulations that meet the current needs of the market and the growing demand for compostable products, especially those that are disposable and contribute the most to the problem of environmental pollution.
Our certified blends from the MI family of materials, offer thermoplastic materials for processing with various technologies as well as conversion into almost any application that is in market demand.


In addition to the MI blends and depending on the customer’s requirements, Bio-Mi can make a tailor-made compound, usually materials for a more complex product packaging, which is expected to meet non-standard properties.

 

Compostability


Composting can reduce the volume of organic waste quite significantly, while the compost produced can be used for agricultural and horticultural purposes. About 50% of all domestic waste comprises an organic material, a percentage that is set to grow in the future due to the growing popularity of biodegradable products.

 

OK compost INDUSTRIAL (EN 13432)

Packaging or products featuring the OK compost Industrial label are guaranteed as biodegradable in an industrial composting plant. This applies to all components, inks and additives. The sole reference point for the certification programme is the harmonised EN 13432: 2000 standard: in any event, all products featuring the OK compost logo comply with the requirements of the EU Packaging Directive (94/62/EEC).

OK compost HOME (EN 13432)

Packaging or products featuring the OK compost Home label are guaranteed as biodegradable in your garden compost as well.

 
 
Recyclability

 

Mechanical recycling is a very important mature technology and often quite efficient, especially in countries that do not implement a separate collection of organic waste.
All our products and materials are entirely recyclable with already existing recycling lines used for traditional plastics. The recycled material can be used in another cycle of extrusion and production.

 

2) Recycled / re-granulated plastics
• Thermoplastics made of 100%-recycled plastics.
• Can be used in both blown and cast extrusion and injection and blow moulding
• Possible applications in the non-food packaging industry, agro-applications, etc.

Final products

products line2

 

Our company advocates sustainable packaging, thus producing and developing packaging films and bags that result in improved sustainability. Our production line covers primary and secondary packaging materials and our final products are made of our MI family of materials.

 

Our blends can be converted into:
• Primary packaging is the material that first envelops the product and holds it. This is usually the smallest unit of distribution or use and is the package that is in direct contact with the contents.
• Secondary packaging is outside the primary packaging and may be used to prevent pilferage or to group primary packages together.
• Compostable single-use plastics, compostable carrier bags and compostable bags for organic collection

 Key properties of our final products:
• High bio-based content 40%-100%
• 100% biodegradable and compostable
• Completely organically and mechanically recyclable
• Plasticizer free
• Food contact approved
• Suited for a wide range of final applications
• Made in EU

2) Agro products

Mulching is an agricultural cropping technique that involves placing organic or synthetic materials on the soil around plants to provide a more favourable environment for growth and production. Mulch films are used to modify soil temperature, limit weed growth, prevent moisture loss, and improve crop yield as well as precocity. Plastic mulch is used, in a similar fashion to mulch, to suppress weeds and conserve water in crop production and landscaping.


Final products for agro-industry are:
a) Mulch films-for different crops cultivation
Our premium mulches are created from organic matter. They are naturally rich and can be used in farming, landscaping and gardening.
b) Agro films and bags- for transport and packaging
Our agro bags are highly resistant and have a large storage capacity. They have a wide range of applicability, from agriculture to construction sectors.
