More and more consumers and manufacturers are prioritizing sustainable products in order to contribute to efforts against climate change. Public and political discussions on how to obtain raw materials as carefully as possible and environmentally friendly “after-use handling” have driven the plastics industry, in particular, to push forward with sustainable innovations. Bio-based and bio-degradable polymers are moving further into focus as this happens.

 

The Lifocolor Group, a leading provider of masterbatches for the polymer-processing industry, is expanding its LIFOCOLOR BIO range to include bio-C color concentrates. These are based on a selection of particularly environmentally compatible colorants. They are suitable for coloring bio-based home compostable polymers and degrade to water, carbon dioxide and minerals under home composting conditions.

 

“Combined with suitable biopolymers, our Lifocolor Bio-C Masterbatches can decompose under home composting conditions. They decompose during the decomposition process to water, carbon dioxide and minerals. All the colorants used are therefore selected so that they do not pollute the environment during degradation”, explained Dr. Martin Fabian, Managing Director of the Lifocolor corporate group.

Lifocolor presents the trendy colors of 2022 for home-compostable biopolymers.


For the first time, Lifocolor has designed its trending color series 2022 according to the standards of bio-C masterbatches. In doing so, the company shows that the world of bio-based and biodegradable bioplastics can be trendy and colorful as well as sustainable.

 

The colourists at Lifocolor have succeeded in meeting the demanding requirements of biodegradability along with designing a variety of brilliant colours. The eleven masterbatch formulations of Colour Road 2022 color biopolymer products that can be composted at home and pave the way for the end product to be successfully certified for home composting.

 

Statutory regulations and outlooks on the EU Directive for the prevention of microplastics have contributed to the increasing development of alternatives to new goods and recycled plastic solutions among manufacturers, brand manufacturers and suppliers

 

Colour Road is developed every year in close cooperation with RENOLIT SE. Their trend experts consult with international color designers and institutes to put together a trend report for Lifocolor. In a joint creation process, the upcoming season’s trendsetting color codes are interpreted for the plastics industry.

 

The motto of Colour Road 2022, “In touch with colours”, was chosen to match the idea of sustainable coloring for biopolymers. The eleven trending colors were inspired by the balance between nature and society. The color world for 2022 deals with the three trending topics: “Elements” with calming blue and green impulses; “Fundamental” with base tones in grey, white and sand colors; and “Statement” in shades of rose, brown and red.
