Dow and BioLogiQ collaborate on plant-based polymers and resins

March 31, 2019 |

In Michigan, Dow and BioLogiQ are collaborating to evaluate potential synergies between BioLogiQ’s novel NuPlastiQ BioPolymer, a thermoplastic plant-based resin, and Dow’s industry-leading polyethylene resin portfolio, in an effort to explore enhanced sustainable plastic options.

Dow and BioLogiQ will work together to test and consider potential applications that incorporate bio-based resins with polyethylene, in the hopes of enabling more plant-based plastic products. BioLogiQ, a seven-year-old startup based in Idaho Falls, Idaho that’s committed to creating plastics from renewable resources, will utilize Dow’s industry-leading research and development, as well as the company’s extensive plastic resin sales and distribution network, to determine if they can successfully leverage plant-based plastics.

The evaluation will help determine if NuPlastiQ is a potential fit with Dow’s business from performance, bio-based and commercial viability perspectives. During the next year, Dow and BioLogiQ will perform evaluations at Dow’s Pack Studios Development Center in Freeport, Texas and engage brands, research institutes and associations to evaluate the range of benefits from a combined offering.
