Solegear Bioplastics get Canada support

Solegear Bioplastics has entered into a significant Contribution Agreement with the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). Solegear seeks to develop bioplastic technologies that leverage industrial waste sources to address durability requirements and mitigate toxic flame retardants in current engineered polymers. The project will build on previous collaborations with NRC-IRAP that supported the development of Solegear’s current family of biopolymers, including Polysole®, a bio-based and compostable bioplastic.
