Biocompounds for Industrial Applications

M·VERA® Compounds

An Unrivalled Range of Biomaterial Products

Our M·VERA® compounds are produced by AKRO-PLASTIC in Germany since BIO-FED is a branch of AKRO-PLASTIC GmbH. In the past 25 years, AKRO-PLASTIC has grown steadily and has extensive expertise in the area of plastic compounding and an annual global production capacity of approximately 100,000 tonnes. M·VERA® products are well established in a number of applications and can be used in various processing methods. 

Our bioplastic film compounds are used for products like shopping bags, fruit and vegetable bags as well as for labels, agricultural applications and a lot more. Our bioplastic materials for injection moulding can be used for coffee capsules, cutlery, cosmetic packaging, toys, plant clips and so on. All our products can be colored individually with our AF-Eco Biomasterbatches.

The Bioplastic Product Family

Bioplastics were first developed as an alternative to petroleum-based plastics. The term bioplastic involves an entire family of products with different properties and applications. A plastic can be classified as a bioplastic if it is either biobased (partly or fully), biodegradable, or both. Biobased bioplastics can be made using a wide range of different feedstocks such as starch, sugar or cellulose – first-generation feedstock. For instance, Polylactic Acid (PLA) is made by using sugar fermentation and is often used for products such as mobile phone components, bottles and other packaging. Furthermore, the bioplastics industry is committed to feedstock diversification. Currently, the first-generation feedstock is in use, and efforts are made to switch to the second generation. The second generation of feedstock can be sugars from bagasse, straw etc. There are also concepts for turning CO2 or CH4 directly into green building blocks – bypassing the agricultural step altogether.
