Environmentally-conscientious consumers can relate to the attributes of Bio-Res™ products that truly contribute to improving our global environment.

  • Bio-Res™ products are derived from renewable feedstock.

  • Bio-Res™ products can replace a portion of traditional oil-based resins.



We don't make the plastic. 
We make the plastic "GREENER".

The following Bio-Res™ powder and pellet attributes further strengthen the product's market this new and innovative product's market position:


Bio-Res™ powder or pellets utilize distillers grains, a renewable resource, that is readily available.


Bio-Res™ powder or pellets are suited for large production volumes as it is derived from a renewable feedstock that is consistently and readily available.


During its life-cycle, Bio-Res™ powder or pellets sequester the carbon originally absorbed by the biomass, and if at the end of that life-cycle it is incinerated, it emits no more carbon than what the plants originally absorbed; thereby being carbon neutral.


Bio-Res™ powder or pellet pricing is not dependent on the price of crude oil.  The initial feedstock, distillers grains, is the by-product of biofuels production process, meaning its use further supports and strengthens the efforts to reduce the consumption of fossil-based energy sources.


Bio-Res™ powder or pellets replace a portion of the traditional resin in some applications, thereby further reducing crude oil consumption.


There are no toxic compounds used in the production of Bio-Res™ powder or pellets.


Bio-Res™ powder and pellets are easy to store and transport.
