Biopolymer-based solutions that perform
The shift from synthetic to “nature-based” is part of the “clean and simple” trend shaping the future of everything from food and manufacturing processes to building materials and packaging. At Ingredion, we are helping you address this trend in industrial applications through the Biomaterial Solutions innovation springboard of Ingredion Idea Labs™ science-based problem solving.
Take advantage of a wide portfolio of high-performance, affordable plant-based polymers to reduce or replace petroleum and synthetic chemicals in bioplastics, personal care, and fabric and home care products. They also help in papermaking, corrugating and even oil and gas drilling.
Our solutions address what is often called the “triple bottom line” with superior performance, sustainability benefits and affordability at the same time. For example, our high-charge papermaking additives made from plant starches enable paper mills to reduce synthetics and get better performance on drainage and strength, speeding production and reducing costs.
We have solutions derived from corn, tapioca, potato and an array of biogums, along with a versatile technology toolbox. Our experts will guide you from consumer and market insights all the way to product launch, helping you incorporate biomaterials into your products and processes.
Future-forward applied research focuses on improving the performance of existing and new raw materials and finding solutions for new industries. Let us help you unlock the capabilities of nature in your industry. Innovate with us.
