Australian sustainable resins manufacturer Cardia Bioplastics has announced that a consumer goods company has commenced in-market validation of its personal care products packaging that is made from Cardia’s renewable Biohybrid resin technology.
The undisclosed consumer goods company, which is engaged in the hygiene and personal care markets is partnering with Cardia in a bid to improve the environmental profile of its product packaging through the integration of Cardia’s resin technology.
According to Cardia, the in-market validation stage is a substantial endorsement of the renewable resin technology and its commercial viability, and the endorsement is expected to translate into an accelerated uptake of the Biohybrid resins.
Cardia managing director Dr Frank Glatz said reaching in-market validation phase with a major company in the personal care market is a milestone achievement for Cardia.
"The global shift towards green economies continues to accelerate, with more and more companies looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. With a strong portfolio of patented renewable resin technologies, Cardia is well-positioned to capitalise on this rapidly growing trend," Glatz said.
