ExhibitorArctic Biomaterials Oy is a Finnish company producing high performance biodegradable and bio-based alternatives for demanding technical applications. The materials are produced on our long-fiber-reinforced-thermoplastic (LFRT) line. This proprietary biodegradable long glass fiber compounding technology increases the PLA temperature resistance and mechanical properties to new levels and opens a variety of possible application areas in the field where technical plastics are being used.
The environmental aspect and climate care are deeply embroidered in our company’s DNA. The two main key indicators in a products’ environmental footprint are greenhouse gases (GHGs) and non-renewable energy use. Compared to traditional oil-based technical plastics the amount of GHGs and use of non-renewable energy (per kg of polymer produced) can be drastically reduced.
Arctic Biomaterials Oy employees are handpicked professionals from the bioplastic field and this knowledge is available to our customers when developing new recipes and solutions.
ExhibitorBetter Biomass is the international certification system for solid, liquid and gaseous biomass. The certificates are used to demonstrate the sustainability of the biomass used for energy, fuels and bio-based products.
The Port of Antwerp, next to hosting Europe’s largest integrated energy, oil and petrochemical cluster (covering a wide range of chemical value chains), also actively promotes the transition towards a circular economy. Renewable energy sources and renewable feedstock processes will play a key role in this transition. Thanks to the combination of our outstanding industrial competence, long heritage in chemistry and excellent infrastructure, the Port of Antwerp is able to offer a unique platform on which bio-based activities can be successfully developed.
