100% Biodegradable and compostable biopolymers to replace plastics from petroleum based on the fundamental principles of sustainable development!
BE-UP is a company created to market biopolymers developed in Quebec and produced using innovative processes that respect the environment. The biopolymers offered are fully biodegradable and produced from renewable raw materials. These biopolymers are part of a large family of 100% natural compounds: PHA (PolyHydroxyAlcanoates). Equipped with properties equivalent to conventional plastics (mostly based on petroleum products), PHAs offer an alternative to their use. They respond to current environmental and societal imperatives and are produced in accordance with the principles associated with sustainable development. The innovative technologies, used to manufacture them, make them competitive, as well as being 100% natural, biodegradable, compostable, non-GMO products and much more. Their use will help to participate in the societal trend against climate change. The biosourced and biodegradable biopolymer synthesis technology created by BE-UP uses a non-pathogenic and non-transgenic bacterial strain fed with sugar sources. These sources may come from plant materials or residues of agricultural transformation waste. The process does not use toxic solvents and has a negligible ecological footprint compared to conventional petrochemical processes.
8.3 BILLION TONS OF PLASTIC HAVE BEEN PRODUCED SINCE 1950, WE WANT TO DO A DIFFERENCE IN MEXICO CITY!
REDUCTION OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND DECREASE PLASTICS WASTE
By this substitution, we believe we can significantly reduce the use of non-renewable natural resources, namely oil. From 4 to 8% of the world oil is processed into polymers, equivalent to over 200 million tons of crude oil per year.
