The Netherlands based Reverdia showcases the polybutylene succinate (PBS) – a biodegradable polymer – that will enable the Chinese plastic industry to reduce the carbon foot-prints and achieve higher sustainability.

Showcasing for the first time at Chinaplas 2014, Reverdia demonstrates the Biosuccinium™ sustainable succinic acid enables the production of a bio-based PBS (polybutylene succinate) with a substantially improved carbon footprint.

PBS can be used as a single polymer or in compounds for both durable and biodegradable applications. Other applications include polyols for polyurethanes, coating and composite resins and phthalate-free plasticizers.
