PBAT

back

Polybutyrate (short for polybutyrate adipate terephthalate, or PBAT) is a biodegradable and compostable (EN13432) biopolymer with similar properties like low density polyethylene (LDPE).

PBAT bioplastics is made from fossil resources. Its compounds (starch, PLA) have a biobased carbon content of up to > 30%. Typical applications (the largest volume product is flexible film for packaging, e.g. compostable shopping bags):
