Puro Bioplastics helps plastic manufacturers and brands affordably transition to more sustainable solutions without any loss of quality or performance. The majority of each of our products is derived from “bio-renewable, bio-waste” and can be used individually or in combination to reduce your reliance on fossil-fuel resin, reduce your carbon footprint, and ensure products can be biologically digested if they are not recyclable.

Why We Use Oyster Shells

Oysters sequester up to 8 grams* of carbon to produce calcium carbonate in their shells. Puro Bioplastics utilizes discarded oyster shells as the primary ingredient in our OysterplastTM and PuroplastTM technologies.

Calcium carbonate from oysters is a carbon-negative material. Oysters actively remove “new” carbon from the environment as they make their shells. And they are bio-renewable, so they will regenerate and in the process, continue sequestering carbon in the environment. Unlike calcium carbonate derived from talc or limestone, which is carbon-positive. These solutions reintroduce “old carbon”, previously sequestered thousands of years ago, back into the environment.

Oysterplast Composite Bioresins are a cost-efficient way to immediately reduce your reliance on fossil-fuel resin and reduce the carbon footprint from most HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PP, and PS products, with no loss of performance. Oysterplast Composite Bioresins emit up to 90% less CO2, on average, versus traditional fossil-fuel resins, making it a truly sustainable alternative.

How We Reduce Your Reliance on Fossil-Fuel & Reduce Your Carbon Footprint.

Carbon Negative Raw Material

Our Oysterplast Composite Bioresins utilize oyster shells, an abundant, carbon-negative, bio-renewable resource, as a replacement for fossil-fuel-based resin. And they are cost-competitive versus traditional petroleum feedstocks.

Patent-Pending Technology

Through our patent-pending processing technology, we are able to combine oyster shell powder with traditional fossil fuel resin to create a new pellet with up to 80% less fossil-fuel feedstock.

Reduced CO2 & Fossil Fuel Raw Materials

Our Oysterplast Composite Bioresins are added as masterbatch pellets to HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PP, or PS products at various load rates, resulting in products with dramatically reduced CO2 emissions and a significant reduction in fossil-fuel-based plastic.

*load rates vary depending on the process and product.
