Bio-plastics can fully replace petroleum-based thermoplastic materials. In principle, they can be used in a large number of classic areas of application and industrial processing methods. Parts for the automotive industry, packaging, household goods and toys, for example, are increasingly being made from bio-composites.

Similar to classic composites, the addition of natural fibres serves to modify and improve in a targeted manner the mechanical properties of the bio-plastic. This also further reduces the CO2 footprint of the end product and increases its sustainable value. This creates a product that can substitute standard plastics such as ABS, PE, PP, PS and technical plastics such as polyamides (PA 6, PA 6.6, PA 12). A balance sheet consideration of the use of resources shows that integrated EoL practice (end of life practice) and customer satisfaction is far superior.
