Polybutylene Succinate Production Cost Analysis 2021

Polybutylene succinate, often abbreviated as PBS, is an example of thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family. It is a biodegradable aliphatic polyester. It has properties that are comparable to polypropylene. Polybutylene succinate may also be referred by brand names like Bionolle or GsPLA. It is made up of polymerised units of butylene succinate and C8H12O4 units. As polybutylene succinate decomposes naturally into the water and CO, it can be a biodegradable alternative to few common plastics. The scope of polybutylene succinate's application fields is still growing. 

Polybutylene succinate can be processed into films, bags, or boxes for both food or cosmetic packagings. Other applications of the product are as disposable products like tableware or medical articles. In agriculture, it is used in the fabrication of mulching films or delayed-release materials for pesticide and fertilizers. In the medical field, it can be used as biodegradable drug encapsulation systems, which is also investigated for implants.
