Nexeo Plastics, a global thermoplastics resin distributor, has announced an agreement with Earth Renewable Technologies, Inc. (ERT), a biotechnology company, to distribute ERT’s BioCompounds in Canada and the United States.
ERT’s range of compostable, biobased and/or biodegradable products will ‘increase the slate of sustainable products we offer our customers’, said Arturo Hoyo, Nexeo Plastics’ Vice President of Product Line Management.
Founded in 2009 in North Carolina, ERT has developed proprietary technology ‘to provide a positive impact on the entire value chain’, as the company states. The company offers a range of PLA-based BioCompounds that are claimed to perform like conventional plastics and suitable for a wide range of uses, including single-use and one-time niche applications, such as bags, bottles and cutlery.
“ERT’s BioCompounds complement the products we already carry and help us close the gap in our renewable solutions line card,” said Hoyo.
ERT’s mission is to develop specialised compounds and additives that impact the performance of plastics transforming consumption towards more sustainable materials.
“We want to make the world more sustainable by improving the availability of sustainable materials that can perform like plastic,” said ERT President Kim Fabri. “Nexeo Plastics’ reach in North America, their understanding of the value of sustainable material, and their growing portfolio of sustainable products make them an ideal partner for us.”
