Government of Canada invests in BOSK Bioproducts to produce 3D printed bioplastics

April 12, 2021 |

In Canada, the Government of Canada announced a C$1-million investment to BOSK Bioproducts Inc. as part of the second phase of the Bioplastics Challenge. This challenge is aimed at helping small businesses reduce pollution by turning forest-based residue into sustainable plastic materials. 

With this funding, BOSK Bioproducts Inc. will focus on the installation of a small-scale production line for proto-typing the formulations of compostable bioplastics made from forest biomass, developed at National Research Council Canada. Additionally, it will allow for product formulation and better compatibility with existing industry manufacturing equipment. 

As part of the first phase, BOSK Bioproducts Inc. developed a highly compostable and cost-effective new bioplastic made from paper mill sludge and wood fiber residue that could be used in areas like 3D printing, food packaging, plastic bottles and containers for cosmetics.
