  • Biopropylene is a patented cereplast resin that contains polyporpylene , starch  and a blend of selective plasticizers to facilitate starch processing. It is made via reactive twin-screw extrusion process. It has two-phase morphology.
  • To make Biopropylene, Cereplast compounds traditional oil-based polypropylene with bio-based materials such as starches from corn, tapioca, wheat and potatoes.
  • The Californian - based company Cereplast claims that its biopropylene resin is an industry  and could replace traditional polypropylene in the vast majority of applications.
