Lifoam said Bioffex is a groundbreaking departure from traditional foam packaging materials. It utilises a polylactic acid (PLA)-based bead foam, eliminating reliance on petroleum-derived feedstocks commonly found in expanded polystyrene (EPS).

This biobased composition is verified through ASTM D6866-20 Method B and qualifies for the United States Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferred programme.

Beyond its biobased origins, Bioffex boasts several environmental benefits. 

The moulding process requires less water and generates fewer greenhouse gasses compared to traditional EPS production.

Additionally, products made with Bioffex can be commercially composted in under four weeks, significantly outperforming EPS in landfills and offering a superior carbon footprint.

“Winning this award validates our commitment to making a tangible impact on the environment through our Bioffex innovation,” said Brian Searfoss, president and CEO of LifeMade Products. 

“We are grateful to the USPP for acknowledging our efforts, and we are more determined than ever to continue our journey towards a more sustainable and circular future.”

Lifoam’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond this award.

The company emphasises its dedication to pioneering packaging solutions that push industry boundaries and contribute to a healthier planet.

“The material thought leaders behind Jadex and its operating companies are taking actions every day to become a more sustainable organisation,” commented Mario D’Ovidio, CEO of Jadex.

“We at Jadex are constantly innovating ways to reduce plastic pollution to ensure we leave behind a better world for the generations to come. Bioffex technology is prime example of this and we are proud to receive this award.”

This award positions Lifoam’s Bioffex as a leading contender in the sustainable packaging market for companies seeking eco-friendly solutions.
