CONTINUED STRONG GROWTH GLOBALLY FOR BIOMATERIALS The market for biomaterials continues to show strong growth, despite a global downturn in the demand for plastics during the pandemic and the introduction of disappointing European legislation for single-use plastics, according to a market study by the nova-institute. News 12 juli 2023 WORRYING LEVELS OF OCEANIC MICROPLASTICS FOUND DURING THE OCEAN RACE Oceanic microplastics remain one of the main environmental challenges ahead. The preliminary results reported by this year’s edition of The Ocean Race added further food for thought, as microplastics were found even in the remote waters of the southern Atlantic Ocean – a route seldom traveled. News 12 juli 2023 BIODOLOMER® FOR 3D PRINTING – A GOOD CHOICE FROM EVERY ANGLE Forward-thinking companies are offering 3D filaments made of Biodolomer® to clients that don’t want to choose between excellent 3D machinability and the environment. And why should they, when they can have both? News 12 juli 2023 GAIA BIOMATERIALS SETS ITS SIGHTS ON THE MULCH FILM MARKET As a leading developer of biodegradable and compostable biomaterials, GAIA has monitored the challenges associated with the mulch film market for a long time. Knowing fully well that the development of a challenging new product is a marathon, rather than a sprint, GAIA has worked methodically to bridge the hurdles associated with mulch film materials before entering the final development phase. News 12 juli 2023 GREENPEACE: RECYCLING MAKES PLASTICS MORE TOXIC A recently published Greenpeace report claims that recycling increases the toxicity of recycled plastic. According to the report, which draws its conclusions from several different reports and research articles, most plastics contain toxic chemicals from the start, to begin with, but by recycling them, further toxic chemicals can be added due to contamination in the plastic waste stream and the recycling process itself.

Press release (non regulatory) 12 juli 2023 NET VALUE; HOW GAIA IS WORKING ON SAVING THE OCEANS, ONE FISHING NET AT THE TIME One of GAIA’s most exciting R&D projects is the development of biodegradable fishing nets. Fishing nets rank among the most prioritized applications to find a sustainable solution for, with an estimated 640000 tons of fishing gear lost or dumped in the oceans annually, with “ghost fishing” causing tremendous harm to marine life. The ambition is to present a commercially viable offer by 2025.

    Sports and Recreation GAIA startpage Sports and Recreation Load more All sports and recreation Sports should be about caring. Not tearing. Sports and recreation are vital to our health and well-being. Unfortunately, it also produces waste that does the very opposite. One example is artificial turf, especially the granules that provide the infill on sports field surfaces that need to be constantly refilled. By shifting from granules made from rubber from recycled tires to granules made out of Biodolomer ® the environmental footprint can be drastically reduced. And granules are just one example. Biodolomer ® is a fully compostable material that contains calcium carbonate. Not only does it not create plastic waste that lives forever. It contributes to earth’s natural fertility. Leaving no microplastics and resulting in some 80 % lower CO2 emissions. Biodolomer ® can be used in various production techniques, including film blowing, bottle blowing, thermoforming, injection, and extrusion coating. Here are some sports and recreation products that can be produced using Bidolomer ® : Drinking bottles See product Golf pegs See product Infill for artificial turf See product Shotgun wads See product Toys See product Load more

  • Carrier bags | Compostable | Biodolomer | Biodegradable

    Carrier bags GAIA startpage Carrier bags Plastic carrier bags from shops and stores are generally considered one of the biggest sources of plastic waste in nature. Still – it’s a really usable product. By making the bags out of compostable Biodolomer® biomaterial you reduce both waste and CO2 emissions drastically. While they still have exactly the same function. And if they accidentally find themselves in nature, they will soon biodegrade, leaving no microplastics. Contact us
