About

Petroleum (oil) based plastics are harmful to human health and the environment.Every year, human beings produce millions of tons of plastic waste which threaten the lives of hundreds of all species especially earth and marine animals. Biolive produce completely natural bioplastic granules stem from olive seeds in order to overcome the problems and fulfil the deficiencies in bioplastic market.It is cost efficient, biodegradable and non-carcinogenic bioplastics. Biolive creates cost-efficient, biodegradable and non-carcinogenic bioplastics through the use of 500.000 olive seeds, which is the amount of olive waste produced during the oil-extraction process in Turkey on an annual basis. Biolive granules are 90% more cost-effective. As Biolive team, we produce 100% organic (without additives), vegan, biodegradable, compostable, cost-effective, nonhazardous to both human health and the nature bioplastics with the active ingredient oleuropein, which is naturally anticancerogenic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral and the antioxidant found in olive seeds, acts to extend bioplastic shelf life and hastens the biodegrading process (which biodegrades in less than a year). This oleuropein in our Biolive bioplastics has inhibition impact on many harmful microorganisms including Esherica Coli.It is also 90% more cost effective than existing bioplastics because of utilizing waste of olive oil companies.It can be used in the whole sectors which use plastics.

Petroleum-based plastics are harmful to human health and the environment. Every year, human beings produce millions of tons of plastic waste which threaten the lives of hundreds of all species especially earth and marine animals. Plastic waste is non-biodegradable and known to increase carbon dioxide levels. These plastics disappear in nature for 450 years and cause approximately 6 kg carbon dioxide emission per kg of plastic. Plastic containers are also known to release carcinogenic materials when they are heated because of containing Bisphenol-A within self, which is especially hazardous for containers containing food products. Hence, this carcinogenic material diffuses human body cells when someone eat or drink anything covered by plastics. Fortunately, nowadays people have come to realize the hazardous effects of petroleum-based plastics to human body, nature-compatible products has become much preferable more than ever. There are also governmental regulations on prohibition of petroleum-based plastics in Europe and some States of America. That is why bioplastic market is getting larger day by day. However, most of the bioplastics are made from starch (amylum) or corncobs which are much more expensive than petroleum-based plastics are therefore not a viable solution for many countries, including Turkey. Therewithal, today’s bioplastics are usually converted to bio-form from petroleum-based plastics therefore, they are not totally natural and even existing bioplastics can be carcinogenic when heated. In addition to all, there is a huge food waste problem in the world which is approximately 1.3 billion tons per year, which is partially caused by inadequacy in extending food products’ shelf lives. There are also governmental regulations on prohibition of petroleum-based plastics in Europe and some States of America. That is why bioplastic market is getting larger day by day. Today’s global biolplastic market is growing by up to 5%. Bioplastic production volume will reach 3.45 billion in 2020. Unfourtunately, in Turkey there is no bioplastic production. Since, most of the bioplastics are stem from starch (amylum) or corncobs which are much more expensive than petroleum-based plastics are therefore not a viable solution for many countries, including Turkey. Alltough, our olive waste based bioplastics’ prices is cheaper than existing bioplastics in ratio of one out of ten. Today’s bioplastic market corresponds to two milliontons which is thirty billion in dollars. The bioplastic market is dominated by respectively Asia, Europe and America. We can fulfill the half of the demand with our production. Biolive produce completely natural bioplastic granules stem from olive seeds in order to overcome the problems and fulfil the deficiencies in bio/plastic market. It is cost efficient, biodegradable and non-carcinogenic bioplastics. Biolive create cost efficient, biodegradable and non-carcinogenic bioplastics through the use of 500.000 olive seeds, which is the amount of olive waste produced during the oil-extraction process in Turkey on an annual basis. Moreover, Biolive granules are biodegradable, compostable, recyclable, transparent and 90% more cost effective than existing bioplastics because of utilizing waste of olive oil companies. - Antibacterial: it protects the hygienic property for along time. It isnot carcinogenic and provides a hygienically environment. - Compatible with human health: Because it is completely natural, it is an edible bioplastic that has no harm to the human body. - Biodegradable: It disappears in less than ayear in nature because there is noplastic additives init. - Cost- effective: It is 90% more cost effective than existing bioplastics because it’s obtained from olive waste
