Sustainable alternative to plastic

The bio-based and biodegradable Sulapac materials can replace
conventional plastics in endless applications. They are circular by design, and safe for people and the planet; yet they meet the quality standards by the world’s most prestigious luxury brands.

Safe for people and the planet

The bio-based and biodegradable Sulapac materials leave no persistent microplastics or toxic load behind. Their carbon footprint is low.

Circular by design

Sulapac materials are made with recycled content and side stream raw materials. They are industrially compostable and suitable for chemical recycling.

Easy to adopt

Sulapac materials can be used with existing plastic converting machinery, enabling a practical and resource efficient transition towards a cleaner future.

Towards the circular future

Our goal is to use only recycled content and side stream raw materials by 2025. Read more about our ambitious sustainability agenda here.

Designed like nature

Nature knows best. That’s why we design Sulapac materials to mimic the beauty, functionality, and circularity of nature.




1) USDA Bio-based certification for most recipes. Certification info available in the technical data sheet of each material.

2) Biodegradation of 48%–59% in 280 days in the marine environment (30C)(ASTM D6691). Tested according to ASTM 5511 (accelerated biodegradation in the landfill, 37C): 68% relative biodegradation in 160 days reached for Sulapac Universal.

3) BPI and/or Seedling certificate for most recipes. Certification info available in the technical data sheet of each material.

4) Our wood originates from certified forests. We always follow our strict Policy for Sustainable Sourcing.

5) Ecotoxicity and threshold values for heavy metals tested according to EN 13432. All raw materials comply with the food contact requirements of the EU legislation.

6) 0,7kg CO2eq/kg for Sulapac Universal (Cradle-to-gate LCA screening performed by an independent third-party consultancy). The corresponding value for polypropylene is 1,7 CO2eq/kg.

7) Can be recycled through hydrolysis back to monomers, suitable as feedstock for recycled biopolymers. Chemical recyclability of Sulapac (excluding Barrier and Heat recipes) has been tested and proven technically feasible by a third-party industrial company. Field tests have also verified that Sulapac materials can be collected and sorted out of a mixed waste stream. When collected together, Sulapac materials do not interfere with the current mechanical recycling of conventional fossil-based or bio-based non-biodegradable plastics. The technology for chemical recycling of bio-based and biodegradable materials exists, but the infrastructure is still under development.
