Powered by Plants with the Mission of Reducing Plastic Pollution
Powered by plants, so there’s less pollution
“iQ” is short for NuPlastiQ®, an innovative plant-based plastic invented by BioLogiQ.
Most of us do our best to recycle, but let’s face it — our waterways, ocean and landscapes are still filling up with plastic waste. We want to give plastic a second life by recycling, but plastic doesn’t always end up where we want it to go.
We can’t wait until plastic has become waste to address the issue. We must start at the beginning. We’re starting by manufacturing NuPlastiQ from plants and making it appetizing to microorganisms. That’s why brands choose iQ to make their products and packaging more environmentally responsible.
iQ™ Technology helps reduce the persistent pollution that happens when plastic waste leaks into the environment.
A Smart Start
A product bearing the iQ label tells you that it includes a technology powered by plants and made with a vision for the future.
Less Plastic Pollution
iQ has demonstrated potential to accelerate biodegradation* of “normal” plastics via a mechanism that is not fragmentation, reducing the potential for the accumulation of microplastics.
NuPlastiQ provides the product experience that you’ve come to expect from “normal” plastics.
Making Plastics More Planet-Friendly
Over the last 50 years, plastic usage has increased 20 times, and it is expected to double over the next 20 years.
Our goal is to help make this market more sustainable by reducing the negative impacts of plastic pollution*.
Plastic products made with NuPlastiQ and our BioBlends have many benefits to helping our environment and improving sustainability.
BioLogiQ’s NuPlastiQ® BioPolymer is a unique type of thermoplastic resin made with our proprietary process that converts high crystalline starch powder into a low crystalline (mostly amorphous) plastic resin.
NuPlastiQ BioPolymer and BioBlend Resins are shelf-stable, maintaining durability during normal use while accelerating biodegradation of normal plastics via a mechanism that is not fragmentation.
NuPlastiQ is the evolution of Thermoplastic Starch (TPS). NuPlastiQ blends with legacy resins, as well as bioplastics, to reduce fossil fuel-utilization and improve biodegradation while not compromising durability.
No special equipment is required for manufacturers to use our resins and there is no increase in labor costs. It simply works.
NuPlastiQ® is your tool for affordable, drop-in biodegradability upgrade

Did you know…
At BioLogiQ, we have invented a process that allows us to make blends of NuPlastiQ with traditional low-density polyethylene in such a unique way that the resulting thin films are significantly stronger than the PE-only film structures.
At BioLogiQ we are committed to preserving the quality of life we all enjoy here on the planet.
Chemical recycling technology plays an essential role in transitioning to a circular economy for plastics, helping to close the loop by recycling previously non-recyclable plastics.
