100% recyclable

PEF is a 100% recyclable bio-based polymer derived from plants. It has the potential to replace the plastic industry´s giant polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which is a durable material derived from conventional resources. It can be described as the next generation polyester, having better mechanical and barrier properties than the current biggest selling polyester (PET).  » read more

Future uses

New technology for future eco-plastics

The starting material is cellulose, sucrose, starch or HFCS. Short process times, excellent control of process conditions and the avoidance of isolating the intermediate HMF are crucial to assure high yields. This differentiates the Treemera process from competing processes, which have low yields, considerable waste and lengthy process times. » read more
