Bioplastics are materials with
plastic-like properties made from renewable resources such as
corn, wheat, rice, soy and potato. Bioplastic materials can be
fashioned in a variety of modalities - from dissolving in water
to withstanding the impact of a hammer - to meet the requirements
of the specific application.
KTM has developed strategic relationships with Michigan State University, National Starch and Chemical Company, Biobased
Manufacturers Association, Corn Marketing Program of Michigan, Capital Area Innovative Farmers, and Pepperell Braiding Company.
KTM is providing bioplastic-based products which meet or exceed the performance of wood, metal, or petroleum-based materials while
providing the environmental and economic benefits of using domestic feedstocks.
