Kaneka Biopolymers, based in the US, produces PHBH™ Resin, a biobased biopolymer that can replace traditional plastic products. Their resin is marine biodegradable, soil biodegradable, home compostable, and industrially compostable. Kaneka's innovation has a significant impact on reducing plastic waste in the environment.
Kaneka PHBH™ Resins are produced from materials found in nature using numerous microorganisms including bacteria that can be found in soil. This technique allows them to custom create multiple grades of Kaneka PHBH™ that will mimic a wide variety of traditional plastic shapes. Their PHBH™ Resins are FDA approved for food contact and are a revolutionary bio-fermentation process using renewable plant oils as feedstock.
