Cereplast, a manufacturer of compostable and sustainable bioplastics, will provide an update on applications that are in development in India at present.
According to the company, its bioplastic resins, including Cereplast Compostables resins and Cereplast Biopropylene grades are being tested by 36 companies for a variety of applications.
Compostable applications include blow-molded water bottles, blown film garbage bags and single-use grocery bags. Biopropylene applications include industrial products, electrical tubing, helmets, bottles and caps, reusable non-woven bags, buckets, dishes, furniture and other household items.
Cereplast chairman and CEO Frederic Scheer said the company is encouraged by the growing interest in the Indian market for its resins.
"Based on the positive feedback we are receiving from our customers about their trials, we anticipate that several of these applications will be commercialized soon," Scheer said.
