EcoPaXX is an innovative high-performance plastic developed to provide a sustainable, bio-based and carbon-neutral packaging solution. Made up of 70% castor oil, the plastic offsets the amount of carbon emitted during manufacturing through the growth of the tropical castor plant. The polyamides are thus suitable in the food industry as well as in the textile industry. EcoPaXX is used in food packaging and the textile industry, among others.
