Title
(EN) METHOD AND FORMULATION FOR RENEWABLE POLYETHYLENE FOAMS
Abstract
(EN)

A method of making a foam using a renewable resource and a foam thereof is disclosed. The foam is made using green polyethylene polymers made from renewable sugarcane ethanol. The use of these polymers to make foam has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide gas emissions by more than half. The foam can be used in a variety of applications and can also be made with blends of renewable LDPE and non-renewable LDPE.
