Biodegradable polymers are used in bio-based sustainable coatings. When submerged in soil, this bioplastic material breaks down into carbon dioxide and water. This makes paper packaging unquestionably more environmentally friendly than any plastic substitute.
Biodegradable coatings are useful for lining containers like bottles used for food items and personal care products because they can be easily applied to a variety of substrates to give a waterproof coating. Under ambient settings, the biodegradable coatings quickly degrade to produce environmentally friendly byproducts.
The global biodegradable coatings market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Danimer Scientific and Kemira have announced an exclusive agreement to create a biodegradable covering for the paper and board sector. In order to provide biodegradable aqueous barrier coatings for more environmentally friendly paper and board goods, Kemira, a global pioneer in sustainable chemical solutions for water-intensive sectors, and Danimer Scientific have partnered. Before examining more extensive production alternatives, the businesses plan to produce coatings for a small number of commercial uses.
A coffee cup’s coating creates a barrier to prevent moisture and grease from leaking through the cup’s material. It is anticipated that the global barrier market will expand by 8% a year.
This coating and surface treatment will guarantee that paper and board products are entirely biodegradable in soil and water as brand owners’ and consumers’ desire for sustainable paper and board products rises. Nodax (polyhydroxyalkanoate, PHA), a biopolymer from Danimer Scientific, is entirely made of renewable plant materials including canola and soy seeds.
The majority of paper and board items, including cups and food packaging, are currently coated with polyethylene derived from fossil fuels, which reduces the products’ potential to be recycled and produces plastic trash.
