Starch Based Bioplastic Products – Green Cell Packaging Products
KTM Industries has manufactured and introduced starch based packaging and insulation products. The process involves extruding starch with water (which acts as the plasticizer) and a blowing agent to get a foam product with controlled cell structure, resilience and barrier properties.
Their green bioplastic products include Green Cell Foam™ insulated cooler which provides excellent cushioning and environmental benefits. The Green Cell Foam™ insulated cooler can be used to fully insulate dry ice and gel ice, and biodegrades within 60 days in a suitable environment.
