NEW: HEMCELL’S ‘COMPOSTABLE’ BIODEGRADABLE PLASTIC;
A GREEN WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITIES
HemCell’s NEW innovation relates to a specific usage and selection of a wordwilde available Agricultural waste material and transforming it via a low cost & low tech process into a generic (home)biodegradable plastic that can be used by any injection molder or extruder on existing standard equipment and tools!
Mixed for example PLA, it transforms PLA in a (home) compostable plastic for biodegrading or even composted in biomass for biogas production.
The window of oppertunitiy is for all products that now have a return or waste collection process such as glass, crates or plastic materials. HemCell’s new material eliminates the necessity and costs of having a waste return process in place.
Hemcell Agricultural waste:
Worldwide available in larges volumes that do not interfere whatsoever with allocated agricultural land required for human or animal food production. The collection of this bio-material will be a ‘side-product & side-income’ for small farmers or cooperation’s in those regions around the globe.

plastics virgin or waste.
HemCell Agricultural Waste: Virgin or waste, PLA and other plastics are available in large volumes. Blending the HemCell® bio-mass that forms the basis of all HEMCELL+
PLA(L)A or HemCell?
contrary to common believe PLA is not ‘home-bio degradable’ but only ‘Industrial bio-degradable via hydrolisis.’ PLA is also very temperature sensitive due the fact that the ‘Glass Transition temperature (Tg)’ is very close to its ‘Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT)’ (50-65 °C). It is therefore not suitable for (fi) cups used for hot liquids. HemCell (in a 50% blend with PLA) increases the HDT to 90-95 C Celsius. Blended with 50% ecycled PP even to a strong 130 bringing it into the HDT range of engineering plastics.
