Bio-Plastic Solutions

Idea to reality: Develop eco-friendly building materials, including window trim interiors and office furniture, that use ag fibers such as wheat straw fiber and polymers to improve the products.

AURI’s role: AURI connected Bio-Plastic Solutions to North Dakota State University researchers that led to a network of resources such as the University of Minnesota, state universities in Winona and Mankato, Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation, and Minnesota manufacturers — including a window company that is interested in Bio-Plastic Solutions’ product. AURI also assisted with hands-on scientific testing of the products.

Outcomes: Bio-Plastic Solutions makes BioBest® parts for doors, windows, wall trim, office furniture and medical devices that contain more than 80 percent biobased carbon. They continue to research ways to make products stronger and more efficient.
