Renewable biofoam

The Synbra Group has a leading position in Europe regarding Expandable Polystyrene (EPS) for Sustainable Insulation Systems and Industrial Products & Solutions for a wide diversity of markets. Synbra Technology bv in Etten-Leur, The Netherlands, is the in-house polymerization and R&D facility ‘Technology & Innovation’ and the centre of excellence in materials and product development. A recent example of the Synbra group’s innovations is BioFoam® Expanded-PLA & Synterra® 2nd generation PLA.

In 2010 Synbra decided to enter the Cradle to Cradle certification program for BioFoam®. This is the world’s first poly-lactic acid (PLA)-based product and the world’s first bio-based foamed product to receive this certification. The Cradle to Cradle standard match perfectly with the developments which has started long before Synbra came in contact with Cradle to Cradle.
