#1 Limestone based bags paves way to decarbonized circular economy

In Japan, TBM Co., Ltd., a company that develops, manufactures and sells paper and plastic alternative products made from a limestone-based material known as ‘LIMEX’, is close to launching LIMEX and Plax bags on the market as alternatives to single-use plastic bags.
Anticipating the demand growth for biomass-based biodegradable resin, TBM announced the ‘Biodegradable LIMEX’ which is composed of limestone as the main raw material and biomass-based biodegradable resin.
TBM introduced the concept model of alternatives to single-use plastic bags made of LIMEX and Plax at the COP24 recently as part of Japan’s delegation.
By working together with Bioworks; TBM’s subsidiary that develops a highly functional modifier for bioplastics, they will promote the market application of Plax (Modified Polylactic Acid Compound), the biomass-based new material.
