Bioplastics

We provide bioplastic for office supplies industry and home appliances industry.

The bioplastics supplied by Inabata are patent rights in 12 countries and contributing significantly to solving the environmental pollution problem from plastic waste.

Bioplastics achieve many quality certificates, satisfying the most demanding manufacturing requirements. This bioplastic, which is produced from biobased material, has 04 great advantages compared to other bioplastics and regular plastics.

01 Cost
After years of research and development, bioplastic provided by Inabata has a much lower price than typical bioplastics and similar to regular plastics.

02 Utilizing agricultural waste
Bioplastics are made from agricultural waste such as empty fruit bunches (EFB) from oil palm trees, rice husks from rice production which do not affect food security.

Palm trees & rice husks

03 Environmental protection
Bio-plastics are more environmentally friendly than regular plastics as less fossil energy is required for their manufacturing and lower green house is emitted.

04 The process of production, transportation and preservation is similar to regular plastic
Bioplastic has the same properties of regular plastic, their transportation and handling process are also similar. The production process of bio-plastics require minimum modification of current tooling, and there is no need for manufacturers to change existing production system. Hence Inabata bioplastics is able to provide competitive pricing.
