BIO-BASED PE packaging materials

Bio-based PE plastic is made either fully or partially from renewable plant-based resources such as sugar cane or corn or other biological resources, providing a more sustainable alternative to raw materials derived from petroleum. It offers the same technical advantages as traditional PE with no difference in appearance and it can be used in food grade packaging.
