The bioplastic of the future ready for today's market
Ne do not push the plastic waste problem into the future we bring a solution without ecological compromises and that does not rely on oil from
We have produced a material that fully competes with many current plastics. It is 100 % biodegradable, fully compostable and made only of polymers from renewable sources. Its properties are modifiable. We will adapt them to the producers´ needs and thus also to the wishes of their consumers. Introducing NonOilen®. A polymer mixture that never becomes a waste, as it turns into biomass at the end of its life.
In the production of the NonOilen® bioplastic, we chose an uncompromising, full-eco approach. With it, we foster the idea of „Giving back to nature what we took from it“. Every product made from our bioplastic can be composted in a so-called industrial compost. Special types also decompose in a home compost or in the soil. Manufacturers do not have to adapt to the properties of NonOilen, we are able to modify NonOilen® according to their requirements. Thanks to this, the spectrum of compostable products can be really varied. In our opinion, such a path leads to sustainable solutions that bring positive results quickly, efficiently and in accordance with the requirements of today’s market.
The idea of entering the market with a material that would have the properties of NonOilen was introduced to academia by Pavol Alexy, a young engineer in the nineties. Later, the knowledge and experience of a by then professor Alexy were combined with the risk tolerance of PANARA, which provided the university research with necessary conditions, and also actively took part in a significant portion of the research. Their synergy and enthusiasm for finding the possibilities to create and especially bring to market a truly ecological bioplastic have united into the NonOilen® granulate we have today. However, the research team continues to work. It modifies and develops such classes of bioplastics that can meet the requirements of sectors wanting to manufacture ecological products.
UP SAS: The SAV Institute of Polymers was the first non-university partner in the research and development of modern ecological plastics. The collaboration between Professor Alexy and Professor Chodák resulted in the first type of material and the first patent. However, in academia, there were no conditions for the real transfer of results from laboratories to industrial practice. That is why further research and development, especially the technological one, has continued in close collaboration with its industrial partner, PANARA.
