BIOCOR: Supporting Bioplastics Recycling — for the Long Run
BioCor LLC is a limited liability company founded on the proposition that the post consumer PLA packaging stream in the market today represents an untapped value proposition. BIOCOR’s business model is simple: BioCor will create a market and act as the end user for all PLA plastic waste — both post industrial and post consumer.
To support recyclers, BIOCOR will
- Pay an economically attractive price for scrap or post consumer PLA, including non-bottle packaging
- Work with recyclers to identify effective methods to separate the bioplastics for sale to Biocor
- Work with Bioplastic manufacturers to create visual identification for ease of sorting at recycling centers
Bioplastics such as PLA and other new materials have potentially important advantages over conventional petroleum based plastics. As market share for Bioplastics grows, BIOCOR can help recyclers handle this promising new plastic.
PLA Bioplastics can be nearly 100% recycled through simple conversion to lactic acid. According to the EPA, less than 10% of petroleum-based plastics are reused.
most of plastics are used in plastic injection mold to make injection molded parts, today buy plastic molds from injection mold china company is the best options.
PLA Bioplastic is derived from plants, grown in the United States not foreign oil.
It takes time to increase the recyclability and lower the environmental footprint of new plastic resins. BIOCOR will work with municipalities, consumers and recyclers to support clear identification, recycling, and reuse of plastic made from plants.
