Cereplast Launches reVive(tm) Bioplastic Resins on America Recycles Day
New Product Line Uses Post-Industrial and Post-Consumer Plastic to Produce
Seymour, Indiana, Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cereplast, Inc. (OTCQB:
CERP) (the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of proprietary biobased,
compostable and sustainable bioplastics, will launch reVive™ bioplastic resins
on November 15, 2013, America Recycles Day. This new line of products is part
of the Cereplast Sustainables® family of resins and uses post-industrial and
post-consumer plastics to produce bioplastics. These revolutionary resins are
the first bioplastics to combine recycled polymers with biobased resins for
improved sustainability, reducing the carbon footprint of this type of
bioplastic by adding the environmental benefits of recycled plastic.
The first three commercially available grades in the reVive line combine
Polypropylene (PP) with plant starch and are reVive R625D with 25% biobased
content, reVive R650D with 51% biobased content and reVive R610D, an impact
modified grade with no bio-content that takes recycled PP and enhances its
properties, answering the increased demand for clean, recycled PP.
Cereplast Chairman and CEO Mr. Frederic Scheer stated, "Cereplast is committed
to its quest for higher sustainability and we are always looking for ways to
reduce the carbon footprint of our product offerings. Not only does adding
recycled materials to our bioplastic resins improve the overall environmental
benefits, we hope that it also encourages further recycling of PP, for which
recycling is typically very low. We are offering the reVive line as an answer
to the demands of market, which in the USA is geared toward an increased use
of recycled material. In addition, reVive will be close to parity with
traditional recycled material, while offering a superior carbon footprint for
companies that are interested in enhanced sustainability. We are excited to
launch reVive on America Recycles Day, the only nationally recognized day
dedicated to promoting recycling programs in the United States."
