BioLogiQ® and CMD Partner to Demonstrate How CMD’s Trash Bag Technology and NuPlastiQ® Combine to Produce an Embossed Drawtape Trash Bag with the Strongest Environmental Profile Available

May 4, 2022 (IDAHO FALLS, ID)—BioLogiQ, Inc., a global innovator and manufacturer of plant-powered biopolymers for use in the production of plastic products, and CMD, the global leader of embossed drawtape bag making technology, announced today that CMD’s model 1270GDSE machine using NuPlastiQ in BioBlend® XP can produce embossed drawtape trash bags with one of the strongest environment profiles available. These bags are not only cost effective but help reduce fossil-fuel based content by up to 35%, cut greenhouse emissions by 15-30%, and add strength that can lead to downgauging of finished films by 20-30%.

Steven Sherman, BioLogiQ’s CEO, said “NuPlastiQ is the best drop-in plant-based resin available for polyolefins, and CMD’s machines have shown that it provides the performance profile required by bag manufacturers and the environmental profile desired by consumers.” Sherman continued, “we’re committed to showing the world that NuPlastiQ is the natural solution to the man-made problem of plastics pollution”.

BioLogiQ’s BioBlend XP resins are comprised of up to 50% NuPlastiQ and designed to enhance sustainability metrics when blended with other thermoplastics such as PE, PP, and PS. Watch CMD’s machine transform BioBlend XP into class leading drawtape bags here.

What is NuPlastiQ?

NuPlastiQ is a plant-based 100% natural renewably sourced biopolymer, that can be used as an ingredient in plastic products – made mainly from non-renewable resources such a fossil fuels – that you see every day. NuPlastiQ has been designed to help reduce our carbon footprint and lower greenhouse gas emissions, and it has also been engineered to reduce the accumulation of plastic pollution in our environment and oceans.

Microscopic organisms found in nature (microbes) are attracted to NuPlastiQ, and they will consume it quickly. When NuPlastiQ is blended with regular plastics, it still triggers the appetites of those microbes, but now they’ll also feed on the regular plastics it’s mixed with. NuPlastiQ acts as an appetite trigger for Nature’s bio-toolbox, so that plastic products containing even a small amount of NuPlastiQ will break down in the environment much more quickly and completely than products without NuPlastiQ, making them better for the planet.
