We’re small enough to rapidly develop a bio-based product that fits your unique formulation and production requirements. We’re also large enough to deliver that product in the volume you need, where you need it, right when you need it. We’ve invested in a production and supply chain infrastructure that gives us the capacity and global capabilities you’d typically see at larger, traditional chemical companies.
Local customer support
Our team of scientists and field professionals provide your team with industry-specific technical support, from initial testing to final implementation. Field service representatives can work directly with your team during production scale-up to ensure the introduction of our biomaterials is completed smoothly, with production commitments achieved as rapidly as possible.
Replacing an ingredient in your supply chain doesn’t need to be a challenge. Our team ensures you have the full support you need at each step of the process. With more than 30% of our team focused on R&D and customer support, we have the resources and scale needed to make rapid progress. We work with customers every day to develop new products and ensure our biopolymers can be seamlessly integrated into your existing formulations. Using state-of-the-art equipment at our Centre of Innovation, our team of industry experts can take you from lab-scale trials to pilot-scale extrusion within hours, helping you understand how our biopolymers will perform and contribute to your success. Our fully equipped Research and development lab and pilot line are well-equipped to perform evaluations to ensure you are meeting all quality and production requirements before moving to full scale production.
ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications
Our management system has been certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards. With these certifications, you can be assured of our commitment to industry leading standards for new product development, scientific research, operations and manufacturing.
USDA BioPreferred Certification
Many of our products have been certified as a Preferred USDA biobased product and carry a biobased content label up to 100%. Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”), the goal of the USDA BioPreferred Program is to increase the purchase and use of biobased products since the increased development, purchase, and use of biobased products reduces our nation’s reliance on petroleum, increases the use of renewable agricultural resources, and contributes to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts. The USDA Certified Biobased label indicates that the product has been certified by USDA and the percent of biobased content is shown on the USDA label.
Under this program, Surflock 2777 has been certified with a 96% biobased content label, EcoSphere biolatex binder 2330, 2202, 2260, have been certified with a 99% biobased content label, EcoSphere biolatex binder 2300, 2336, and 2338, have been certified with a 100% biobased content label, and EcoSphere biolatex binder 2108 has a 98% biobased content label. With these certifications, you can be assured that our products are biobased and we can make a meaningful impact on your carbon footprint.
