DaniMer's Partnership with CCR Enhances its Focus on Marketing of Biodegradable Resins

Published on 2011-07-20. Author : SpecialChem

BAINBRIDGE, GA -- DaniMer Scientific has announced a new partnership with CCR in Milan. This partnership with the Italian firm will enable a focus on marketing of DaniMer's biodegradable resins throughout Europe. Taking advantage of new legislation to reduce the use of traditional PE shopping bags, DaniMer looks to build on its success in the US, creating a market in EU for its compostable bio resins.

"Breaking into the European market is a huge opportunity for our company and working with CCR will help us make an impact across many countries," said Blake Lindsey, President, DaniMer Scientific. "With so many people and organizations moving toward environmentally conscious packaging and products, we look forward to introducing our biodegradable resins and technology to different organizations, helping them make a difference."

DaniMer is a global leader in the research and development of biopolymers derived from renewable sources, working to bring more environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional plastics. Over the years, DaniMer has developed a series of bio resins. In 2006, DaniMer helped International Paper launch the Ecotainer with the first compostable extrusion coating resin as an alternative to PE. In addition, DaniMer has developed resins for films made from renewable resources for use in film products like shopping bags, or bags for waste collection. Most recently, DaniMer has developed a new hot melt adhesive from renewable resources which is both compostable and repulpable.

"We are very proud of our hot melt adhesives, which are based on biodegradable polymers," added Lindsey. "These bio-resin adhesives are manufactured using renewable materials rather than the petroleum derived materials used to make traditional hot melt adhesives."

CCR markets products produced in Italy and globally through a network of partners in the main European countries as company representatives. Over the past few years, CCR has grown its portfolio of products bringing a new set of solutions in the packaging field in accordance with environmentally friendly requirements.
