BAINBRIDGE, GA -- DaniMer Scientific, a national corporation focusing on the development of sustainably produced, renewable and biodegradable resources, presented recently at the 2011 Bioplastek Forum in New York City.

Blake Lindsey, Scientific President, DaniMer was part of a breakout session panel on packaging applications, which discussed biopolymers and the value delivered to clients.

As part of the presentation, he unveiled the first of a complete family of hot melt adhesives based on biodegradable polymers. These bio-resin adhesives are manufactured using renewable materials rather than the petroleum derived materials that are used to make traditional hot melt adhesives. The new DaniMer adhesives are designed to operate in existing hot melt applicators, including hand-guns and automatic applicators.

"It is a very exciting time in the world of bioplastics," said Lindsey. "DaniMer is honored to be a part of such an innovative and forward-thinking group to discuss our technology and the advances we're making in bioplastics and hot melt adhesives."

The inaugural BioPlastek Forum on Bioplastics Today and Tomorrow, featured more than 40 top-level industry brand owners/OEMs, processors, academics and government leaders, presenting analyses of where the industry is today and its future potential.

"We are constantly working to improve our technology and develop new resins to help our clients achieve their goals, while supporting global efforts to use sustainable resources," added Lindsey. "Our biodegradable plastics offer improved product performance and can be used in a variety of applications from packaging to labels, bottles and lids."
