EarthBi, the true
environmental revolution

The project

EarthBi is an Italian “green” start-up that proposes a new biobased and highly biodegradable plastic material, which doesn’t pollute because it dissolves in a short time.
Through a patent developed thanks to a study carried out in collaboration with Italian scientists and industrial chemists, the PLA (polylactic acid) is made better, expanding its use capabilities and making it suitable for different production processes, even the most complex ones.
Earthbi bioplastic is obtained using biomasses derived from production waste of natural origin and can be disposed through normal composting processes.
The patent was filed at Ufficio Italiano Brevetti e Marchi  -the Italian patent and trademark office – with this number 102019000002891, in collaboration with Studio Torta, one of the leading Italian companies specializing in patents.
From the first bioplastic production line in Italy, located in the Pomezia plant (RM), plants will be developed in Slovenia and Malta in the coming months, for a total final capacity of about 60,000 tons / year.

Bioplastics

EarthBi® plastic can be used without having to change existing production lines and it is possible to print complex and detailed plastic products, such as bottle caps.

Biopolymers can be processed in normal petrochemical plastics processing plants without having to make special modifications to existing structures.

The biopolymer can be used in the industrial sectors of packaging, automotive, transport, construction, beverage, biomedical applications, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals.

More bioplastics, less pollution

The basic element from which EarthBi® bioplastics
derive is the:

PLA - Polylactic acid

A market with
a great future

The market for biobased and/or biodegradable plastics is constantly evolving.

Plastics production worldwide reached 400 million tonnes/year already in 2016. Of this huge amount, less than 2% is bioplastic.

With EarthBi, the problem of global pollution caused by plastics can be finally solved without altering the balance of the markets and in full compliance with current regulations.

In fact, the law imposes a total stop to disposable plastics from 2021.
EarthBi already solves the problem now, well in advance of the legal requirements. EarthBi is working to protect the planet today.
