We have already achieved positive results with the bio-based plastic PLA as a basic material. The abbreviation PLA stands for polylactide, which is also known as polylactic acid. PLA is typically made from corn or potato starch that has been converted into lactic acid using lactic acid bacteria. This material is biodegradable and can be decomposed under climate-neutral industrial composting conditions.
PLA is currently only one of the options for producing strapping from renewable resources. Along with this basic material, we are continuing our research and development efforts aimed at producing straps from other organic raw materials.
