BIO PLASTICS BY MULTITUBES
Multitubes was the first in 2010 to launch renewable alternatives for extruded tubes. We produce up to 100% bio-based tube sleeves and shoulders and up to 75% bio-based closures.
WHY BIO PLASTICS?
We found an alternative for fossil-based plastics in Rio Grande do Sul, located in the southern region of Brazil, far away from the rainforest. This plastic has the exact same properties as our regular plastic, the only difference; the ethanol used to produce this plastic is not derived from earth oil, but from sugarcane waste. A renewable source that can be replanted, without taking any sugar out of the food chain. Our bio-based plastic is 100% recyclable, in the same stream as regular PE.
Another benefit bio-based plastic has, is that it captured CO₂ in the production process. Because the bio-based plastic we’ve found in Brazil originates from sugarcane plants it captures a lot of CO₂.
By using 100.000 ton of bio-based plastic instead of regular plastic we prevent a CO₂ emission equal to the yearly emission of more than 500.000 cars.
