Bioplastic News Roundups

As I've said before this post, too much news clogging my draft box and it's just the first month of the year.

Cereplast new hybrid resins
Cereplast launched its next generation Hybrid Resins, an expansion of its Biopropylene PP-based resin product offering through new grades, Hybrid 102D and 105D. The resins replace up to 50% of the petroleum content in traditional plastic products with biobased materials such as starches. The new grades Hybrid 102D and Hybrid 105D are both injection molding grades, a heating and cooling manufacturing process in which the material is molded in different shapes.
