  • Biofoam - Home
    that recently was developed by Sulzer Chemtech and Purac Biochem will be built by Synbra Technology in the Netherlands for the production of BioFoam a foamed product made from this PLA BioFoam will be positioned complementary to the wide range of polystyrene foam products offered today The new plant has a capacity of 5 000 ton year With this move Synbra intends to take a leading position in Europe as supplier of sustainable and biologically degradable polymers from renewable sources Synbra has received the Cradle to Cradle certification for the production of BioFoam This is world s first Poly Lactid Acid PLA based product and world s first bio based foamed product to receive this certification Being produced from the renewable resource PLA BioFoam is an addition to the current range of advanced EPS foam products offered today BioFoam has a different environmental profile over traditional oil based plastics After use the BioFoam product can be remoulded into a new product like EPS and it has additional end of life options It can be completely biodegraded composted or used for feedstock for recycling Being designed for the environment implies there is no chemical waste which complies with the so called

  • Biofoam - Energy and CO2
    as being carbon neutral On the Plastics Europe website http lca plastiscseurope org on which one can find a Life Cycle Analysis LCA for most polymers and also a number of end products a method is offered to compare the eco profiles of different end products This website also provides information regarding the kg CO2 emission per ton polymer for the traditional polymers in those mentioned end applications Based on an internal LCA from Purac Biochem for a lactide based PLA polymer and internal Synbra figures for the processing of BioFoam it is possible to make a comparison with traditional polymers These figures will be incorporated in a formal BioFoam LCA to be finalized in the very near future PLA has a different production process than most other polymers This polymer is derived from in the production of sugar cane which is being refined to sugar then fermented to lactic acid from which lactide is being made Lactide is finally polymerised to PLA Of course for a number of these steps fossil fuel is also needed The most important steps are sugar production production of lactide transportation and the polymerisation of lactide to PLA An important difference with the fossil fuel based polymers is that the raw material is originating from biomass namely sugar cane see figure 1 The most important gain lays in the fact that during the growth of the plants nett CO2 is absorbed The sugar cane plants stores CO2 by forming sugar under the influence of the sunlight This energy represents a large part of the energy needed of the end product and does not come from oil During the production of lactide based PLA which in the end will lead to moulded BioFoam on the average only 30 40 of CO2 will be emitted compared

  • Biofoam - Processing
    for interested customers in Europe and the USA BioFoam processing has now left the laboratory and is running into series production for selected parts The process of moulding is diligently adapted to suit expansion of the raw beads called BioBeads in existing EPS shape moulding equipment resulting in uniform expanded beads and uniform cell structures A spherical and uniform series of raw beads in three classes sized 0 6 0

  • Biofoam - Physical and thermal properties
    bv Articles News Contact Physical and thermal properties The physical properties of BioFoam have been determined see table 1 and bear a good resemblance with EPS The thermal properties are strikingly similar which has lead to an interest in the cooled transport for supplies of medical substances BioFoam is resistant to liquid nitrogen LN2 and CO2 granules or dry ice the latter is often used in the cooled transport chain
