We have developed and are commercializing proprietary bio-based resins through
two complementary product families: Cereplast Compostables� resins which are
compostable, renewable, ecologically sound substitutes for petroleum-based
plastics, and Cereplast Sustainables� resins (including the Cereplast Hybrid
Resins product line), which replaces up to 90% of the petroleum-based content of
traditional plastics with materials from renewable resources. Our resins can be
converted into finished products using conventional manufacturing equipment
without significant additional capital investment by downstream converters.
The demand for non-petroleum based, clean and renewable sources for materials,
such as bioplastics, and the demand for compostable/biodegradable products are
being driven globally by a variety of factors, including fossil fuel price
volatility, energy security and environmental concerns.
