The key to biodegradation

KANEKA Biodegradable Polymer Green Planet™ is produced through a microorganism fermentation process, in which plant oils and their fatty acids are used as a primary raw material. The polymer accumulated in bacteria is extracted and purified by a water-based process.

It shows excellent biodegradable properties under natural conditions such as in soil and marine waters and will biodegrade into biomass, carbon dioxide, and water through the digestive process of microorganisms available in nature.
