Kaneka Biopolymers is a division of Houston based Kaneka Americas Holding, Inc.. Kaneka Biopolymers manufactures a new and unique PHA biopolymer called PHBHTM. PHBHTM is a plant-based biopolymer that offers both flexibility and heat resistance. PHBHTM is produced via a novel bio-fermentation process that uses renewable plant oils as feedstock. PHBHTM is not only bio-based and bio-compostable in aerobic, anaerobic or marine environments, it is also strongly resistant to heat and can act as a barrier to water vapor. Our grades are stable under everyday usage conditions but provided the right conditions, under either anaerobic, aerobic or marine conditions in the natural environment, the product will begin to biodegrade and will return back to nature.
