Catalogue-based solutions

Menu-card Services

Our catalogue-based services make it easy for you to get control over your plastic material: we make it, we improve it, we show how to degrade it, and we let you understand it by our specialised analysis methods. And to connect your wildest plastic dreams with reality: we fish it out from our Bioplastics Library! A match made in heaven?

Unit operations

Make your material

Improve your material

Degrade your material

Polymerization of materials from gram to ton-scale 

  • up to 1-kg: Laboratory
  • up to 100-kg: Pilot
  • up to 1000-kg: Demo

Upgrading of materials from gram to ton-scale

  • Material derivatization
  • Viscosity fine tuning
  • Masterbatch (ecological additives)

Degradation of your material

  • Enrich, isolate and sequence microorganisms degrading your material
  • Screen the behavior of your material under degradation conditions
  • Degradation pathway elucidation

Required characteristics of your material

  • Thermomechanical properties (softening point, crystallinity, E-modulus, tensile strength,…)
  • Viscosity measurement (per polymer class)
  • Determination of contaminants (toxics, leaching)
  • Stability (heat, UV, solvents, salts, biofilms)
  • Composition (chemical, elementary, inorganic fraction)
  • Extractables (amount, type)
