Major distributor snaps up BioLite
This is big news: The large plastics and rubber distributor Erteco will start offering Trifilon's BioLite as a sustainable-choice plastic intended for injection molding. Erteco says more and more of its customers are requesting green alternatives. In fact, they got in touch with us after one of their customers requested a green-choice polyolefin, the class of plastics most commonly used in injection molding. We at Trifilon see this collaboration – a major materials supplier sticking a Nordic biocomposite in their catalogue – as an important step in the long journey to making the production of consumer goods more sustainable. And Erteco can put Trifilon’s eco-minded materials alongside conventional polymers because it performs without the problems associated with other biocomposites. It’s the easiest first step.
