BASF signs exclusive contract with Lactips to market bio-based and biodegradable films

By Gerald Ondrey |

BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf.com) and Lactips (Saint-Jean-Bonnefonds, France;  www.lactips.com) signed an exclusive contract to market Lactips’ water-soluble, bio-based and fully biodegradable material. This long-term partnership supports BASF’s strategy to leverage sustainable solutions to drive business growth.

BASF and Lactips will bring in their respective expertise to offer this innovative technology to the home care as well as industrial and institutional (I&I) market. While Lactips, a young, French company in the area of biodegradable plastics, focuses on the development of the film material technology based on technical casein obtained from excess of milk protein production, BASF will bring in its expertise in network and supply chain to market the product. The solution of Lactips aims on the replacement of polyvinyl alcohol films in home care and I&I applications, such as dishwasher tabs.

“Sustainability plays a major role in all of our business processes,” states Robert Parker, director, New Business Development at Care Chemicals, BASF. “Lactips’ solution for films for dishwasher tabs supplements our existing portfolio of sustainable offerings. It allows us to provide our customers with a broad portfolio of bio-degradable products for the home care industry.”

“Lactips is proud to have its technology marketed by a leading global partner with a strong network,” says Marie-Hélène Gramatikoff, CEO Lactips. “We will benefit from BASF’s experience and latest developments in the home care industry.”
