Apigo bio

APIGO BIO are olefin-based thermoplastic bioplastics (TPE-O or TPO) containing raw materials from renewable resources.
These compounds guarantee the same physical-mechanical properties and the same processability as traditional fossil-based TPE-O.
APIGO BIO includes soft and rigid grades, special food contact approved grades and biocompatibility certification.
These bioplastics from renewable sources offer significant environmental benefits by reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases (e.g. CO2) and saving fossil-based resources for future generations.
