Known for their quality line of bioplastic resins, Cereplast Inc. has bowed to consumer demand by introducing eleven new grades of bioplastic resins.

I’ve written a few posts on the varied use of bioplastics in consumer products (see http://3.ly/bQ3P and http://3.ly/GKcW).  Cereplast’s resins are used to produce products as diverse as tableware and cutlery,  toys,  healthcare/hygiene products, bottles/containers, bags, packaging, gift cards, printed displays, straws, and  pipes, conduits.

In the wake of the disastrous BP oil spill, consumers are demanding more sustainable solutions that rely less on petroleum, says the company.

Cereplast anticipates this demand will result in the company shipping approximately 16 million pounds of bio-plastic resins to customers this year, a 400 percent rise in shipments and 190 percent rise in revenue over 2009 figures.

With the new line of resins, Cereplast will produce plastics using a more sustainable manufacturing process. These plastics, says the company, will reduce landfill disposal and greenhouse gas emissions.
