Foams & Films from PHA Bioplastic

Within this project KNN Bioplastic develops prototypes based on PHA biopolymers. By doing so we realize innovative consumer products with a functional biodegradation and a minimal impact on our natural environment.


Converting innovative biodegradable PHA biopolymers into high end materials, such as foams and films, is a big industrial challenge. Especially when a high content of PHA biopolymers is desired. For instance for enabling end products:

  • with good biodegradability under mild conditions (e.g. home compostable),

  • or with a high biobased content.

KNN Bioplastic acknowledges the potential of PHA based films and foams, and collaborates with the University of Groningen, Oerlemans Packaging and Ecostyle to realize this goal.
