Starch is a versatile biopolymer obtained from renewable plant resources such as maize, wheat, and potato harvests. Conventional processing techniques such as extrusion, injection molding, compression molding, thermoforming and reactive extrusion, have been adapted for processing thermoplastic starch.
Our foam starch is 100% all-natural bio-based packaging, derived from non-GMO corn starch. It provides excellent cushioning and insulative properties and can match thermal performance when compared to EPS foam inch-for-inch. Extruded starch manufacturing requires 70% less energy and produces 80% fewer greenhouse gasses than petroleum based foams.
