SPTek OYSTERLEAN™

Improving plastics with bio-based carbon

OYSTERLEAN™ reduces the environmental impact of conventional plastic with bio-based carbon sourced from oyster shells. This technology improves the mechanical characteristics of plastic, reduces processing times, temperatures and the dependence on fossil fuel-based resins.

  • Food packaging: rigid containers, clamshells, trays
  • Bottles and containers: shampoo, conditioner, detergent, pharmaceutical
  • Protective packaging: stretch film, shrink film, bubble wrap
  • Extruded films: printing, laminating, barrier, sealant
  • Short service life items: trash bags, shopper bags, fast food packaging
  • Agricultural film applications: mulch, crop protection materials
  • Building materials
  • And many other applications
  • Improved material flow and machine throughput
  • Reduces energy usage in the manufacturing process
  • Extremely effective bio-based whitening agent that can replace chalk, talc, limestone and titanium dioxide
  • Lowers the carbon footprint (CO2) by 80–90% in comparison to polyethylene (PE)
  • Can reduce the climate impact in polythene shopper bags up to 40%

Problem

The future is bio-based

Bio-based plastic, made from renewable sources, has long been seen as a viable alternative to fossil fuel-based plastics. Depending on the source, bio-based plastics can shrink carbon footprints, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and play a huge role in the circular and regenerative economy models. However, only 2 million tons of bio-based polymers are produced annually; in comparison, over 380 million tons of fossil fuel-based plastics are produced annually around the world.

Solution

Our step towards a bio-based future

Our OYSTERLEAN™ technology significantly reduces reliance on fossil fuel sources to create plastic products. This productive step allows for companies to start replacing fossil fuels with bio-based calcium carbonate that is sourced from oyster farms during harvesting. This technology can reduce fossil fuel-based resin in products by up to 50%.

Result

Turning oyster shell waste into a powerful product

Oyster shells are already a powerful tool for sequestering carbon. By turning them into a bio-based resin we are able to cut carbon footprints, transtition plastic to bio-based sources, and use their natural strength to create a product that is jam-packed with sustainable solutions.
