Natural material of the future

Let's give nature back what we owe. NonOilen® is an eco alternative which enables us to swap traditional plastic materials. NonOilen® is a progressive bio-degradable material made from sustainable sources.

"One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken."

OUR GOALS

Help protect our only home

The global plastic production has reached 370 million tonnes in 2019 and gets worse every year. Plastic production is expected to double by 2050. Almost 80% of plastic waste ends at dumps, oceans and nature in general, only 12% is recycled. This requires a sweeping change in how we think about plastic production and plastic waste disposal. 

.NonOilen® brings the solution.

With a biodegradable material, we are able to almost completely replace plastics

We are introducing the option of material recycling, which cannot be achieved with other bioplastic materials

We are rethinking the life cycle of products so that the waste created can be re-used and doesn't hurt the environment.

We are re-using materials created as waste products in other industries and use them as entry materials for the production of Nonoilen.

NonOilen® Concept

non-oil-environmental

100% ecological

NonOilen® enables a closed life cycle of products in the spirit of the philosophy: "Let's give back nature what we own." Its decomposition helps alleviate climate change.

Fully compostable

NonOilen® is 100% biodegradable, no microplastics are created and degrades only in a bio-active environment.

Fully sustainable

Fully sustainable NonOilen® is created from polymers originating from 100% biobased without usage of wood, paper, or cellulose fibres.

100% Slovak

NonOilen® is a material invented and produced in Slovakia

Produced without fossil fuels

NonOilen® doesn't include any synthetic polymers produced from fossil fuels.

Biocompatible

NonOilen® decomposes into harmless and non-toxic compounds that don't have a negative impact on nature.

Recyclable

Nonoilen can be recycled a number of times

FAQ

The difference is huge! Although NonOilen® contains PLA. We are far away from PLA: Due to the unique and patented combination with PHB and TPS. Properties are on a whole new level. For example: adjustable material properties. NonOilen® can be flexible, durable, hard, firm, or brittle to meet your specific requirements. heat resist up to 110°C... Compostable process and biodegradation are much faster. In addition NonOilen® is possible to decompose in HOME compost with full assimilation. (unlike PLA) We are working on types that will be decomposed in soil. We already have a type that is biodegradable in the marine environment.

The main ingredients are polylactic acid (PLA) and polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), the first generation of NonOilen® bioplastics. In addition to these two base polymers, the second generation contains specially modified starch, the so-called thermoplastic starch (TPS). PLA is also made from starch and PHB is a metabolic product of certain micro-organisms and is also produced industrially by biotechnology.

In addition to these basic ingredients, organic plasticizers (almost exclusively citric acid esters) are added to the mixtures. A third generation of Nonoilen is currently being developed, which will use organic waste from other biomass-based industries and should have better mechanical properties and even easier degradability in a biologically active environment.

NonOilen®'s base philosophy is that the raw material base for polymers should not be of fossil origin, but from renewable sources instead.

The difference is generally in three basic parameters. Other bioplastics on the market do not have at least one of these parameters. For example, PLA itself is made from renewable raw materials, but is too brittle, cannot be made into flexible and tough products and has poor stability at higher temperatures.

A cup made from NonOilen® can be washed in hot water up to 100 °C, the PLA cup cannot. The blends used to make flexible films and biodegradable bags and pouches that are currently on the market contain approximately 50% polymer base from fossil raw material sources. NonOilen® is flexible even without fossil polymers.

The composition of bioplastic products currently on the market is rather hazy. Only incomplete information is provided, such as the fact that the product is made from renewable sources. The fact that only 30% of the sources are renewable and the rest are fossil materials is often undisclosed. Unfortunately, it is very difficult, if not impossible, for the public to get to the real composition of conventional bioplastics.

With NonOilen®, we are able to exactly and publicly document its composition.

This largely depends on the product itself. Thicker products will decompose more slowly than thin films. In laboratory tests, NonOilen® in any formulation decomposes faster than wood or in some cases, faster than pure cellulose.

In tests in a real municipal composting plant, it decomposes much earlier than paper or pulp. The 50-micron film from the first generation of NonOilen® decomposes in about 14-20 days in the conditions of an industrial electric composter for kitchen waste disposal, the second generation of NonOilen® in 6 to 12 days.

In soil at a temperature of 25 °C, about 60 % decomposes in a year.

The production of NonOilen® is based on the mixing of several basic polymers and additives, but it is not just simple mechanical mixing, but a so-called reactive mixing, where specific chemical reactions take place in the melt, which give the final product some exceptional properties. For example, despite the fact that it contains PLA, which does not decompose under home compost conditions, NonOilen® is capable of such decomposition.

In the case of the second generation, even with a high starch content in the mix, very good mechanical properties can be achieved. Nonoilen can be modified in a relatively wide range from hard and rigid materials to highly flexible, ductile materials.

It is similar in mechanical properties to the corresponding synthetic equivalents.

This will depend on how willing we are to implement green solutions in our daily lives. This type of plastic is a material that does not contain polymers from fossil sources and so does not contribute to the global warming effect when it breaks down.

 

In addition, after decomposition into humus, the third generation of Nonoilen will leave it enriched with some of the elements that plants need for their growth and are currently supplied in traditional agriculture in the form of artificial fertilisers.
