GLOBIO - Bio-PET

FKuR Kunststoff GmbH

Description :
Bio-PET contains up to 30% renewable resources due to the use of biobased MEG. The basis for this bio-based MEG is ethanol manufactured from Brazilian sugar cane, rather than using ethanol produced from oil.
GLOBIO is a ‘drop-in’ solution and is therefore able to replace conventional PET in a wide variety of applications. Typical applications for GLOBIO are bottles, films, automotive and other injection molding applications.
