Aquaculture, Fishing, Animal Husbandry and Hunting
Biopolymers for the Production of Biodegradable Products
The sectors of aquaculture, fishing, animal husbandry and hunting are fundamental in human nutrition but have a high environmental impact. The use of plastic materials during their processes generates waste that can disrupt natural ecosystems. Biodegradable biopolymers and compostable solutions offer a safer and more sustainable alternative. INZEA offers a wide range of biodegradable and compostable biopolymers designed to naturally decompose in soil, water, or composting conditions, reducing their persistence in the environment and minimizing adverse effects.

Moreover, compostable grades of INZEA offer an even more sustainable option as they can decompose in a controlled composting environment along with other organic materials. This allows for their transformation into high-quality compost that can be used as fertilizer in agriculture, closing the life cycle of materials and avoiding the accumulation of plastic waste.
Short-Lifespan or Hard-to-Manage Applications
In the field of aquaculture and fishing, it is recommended to use biodegradable biopolymers in applications where a limited lifespan is required, such as packaging or films that protect aquaculture products during transportation and storage. They can also be used in certain fishing utensils where waste collection can be challenging. These biopolymers naturally decompose after fulfilling their function, leaving no toxic or harmful residues.
Regarding intensive and extensive livestock farming, the use of plastic products is important in processes such as identification, animal feeding, medicine, reproduction, and product transportation to ensure proper sanitary conditions. However, due to the limited lifespan of these plastic products, environmental considerations and waste management after use should be critical factors in their design. Compostable biopolymers offer a solution to simplify the management of these waste materials as they decompose alongside organic materials generated in agricultural operations..
Additionally, INZEA’s range of solutions includes the production of hunting cartridges that maintain the properties of conventional polymers but with the advantage of facilitating biodegradation in soil, contributing to the sustainable assimilation of plastic waste.
INZEA is Safe for the Environment and the Food Chain
INZEA’s range of biopolymers offers different options that are safe for food contact and have undergone ecotoxicity testing. Moreover, they comply with the most rigorous international standards in terms of compostability and biobased content.
NUREL provides guidance and collaborates with companies seeking more sustainable solutions in these markets, working together with their regular suppliers and converters. The goal is to redesign products that meet the environmental requirements of biodegradability or compostability while maintaining equivalent technical performance.
WHAT IS INZEA
The world is changing and the plastics industry has to adapt to a new situation where sustainability is a priority for governments, businesses and consumers. INZEA® is our response to our customers’ demand for more sustainable plastic materials.
INZEA is a range of biopolymers which can replace traditional plastics in different applicationssuch as bags, mono-use items and packaging, with the advantage of being biodegradable and compostable.
INZEA product range is obtained from renewable sources and is designed to return to nature by different disposal methodslike industrial & home composting, or by biodegradation in different environments.
Hoy en día, podemos encontrar mariscos y moluscos envasados al vacío en los estantes de los supermercados. El envasado de estos productos requiere films con altas prestaciones, como barrera al oxígeno y a la humedad, resistencia a la perforación, alta transparencia y propiedades de sellado. Las copoliamidas de Promyde® ofrecen soluciones para este tipo de envasado.
En la industria ganadera, se emplean dispositivos para la identificación y seguimiento de animales. En ocasiones, se recurre a la poliamida debido a su alta resistencia a las condiciones climáticas y la abrasión. NUREL ofrece una solución que complementa las propiedades de la poliamida: Promyde® Bio, una gama de poliamidas biodegradables, ideales para elementos de identificación que podrían extraviarse durante las distintas etapas de la vida del animal, ya sea en entornos interiores o exteriores.
