Biobent Polymers is a bioplastics service provider. Our patent pending process allows us to convert your traditional thermoplastics into bio-composite polymers. Biobent has successfully converted a wide range of thermoplastics. For more information on how this process works please email kmasavage@biobent.com.

Revolutionary Bio-Composites

Biobent Polymers is gearing up to produce bio-composite polymers made with 30%-40% bio-feedstocks. These bio-composites are designed to maintain the mechanical and operational properties of the “virgin” base thermoplastic. With 30%-40% bio-content, Biobent is able to save customers 2% to 18% and meet USDA BioPreferred requirements. Price – Performance – Sustainability

Polymer Flexibility

Our process works with a variety of thermoplastics including PP, HDPE, LDPE, TPO, and PBS. Using the customers’ base resin (which they are already familiar with) allows them to transition quickly to a bioplastic solution.

Bio-Feedstocks

Biobent uses non-food grade agricultural byproducts or waste to produce bio-composite polymers. With funding from the Ohio Soybean Council and the UDSA’s United Soybean Board, low value spent soy flake has been our primary bio-feedstock. Careful analysis of this soy flake has allowed us to identify other bio-feedstocks with similar carbohydrates-protein-cellulose ratios. Successful tests have been accomplished with canola, algae and agave bio-feedstocks.

Products, Markets and Conversion

Biobent bio-composites can be used to produce a wide range of products used in many different markets and applications.
