Cereplast Launches reViveTM Bioplastic Resins on America Recycles Day

New Product Line Uses Post-Industrial and Post-Consumer Plastic to Produce Bioplastics

Cereplast, Inc. (OTCQB: CERP) (the “Company”), a leading manufacturer of proprietary biobased, compostable and sustainable bioplastics, will launch reViveTM bioplastic resins on November 15, 2013, America Recycles Day. This new line of products is part of the Cereplast Sustainables® family of resins and uses post-industrial and post-consumer plastics to produce bioplastics. These revolutionary resins are the first bioplastics to combine recycled polymers with biobased resins for improved sustainability, reducing the carbon footprint of this type of bioplastic by adding the environmental benefits of recycled plastic.

The first three commercially available grades in the reVive line combine Polypropylene (PP) with plant starch and are reVive R625D with 25% biobased content, reVive R650D with 51% biobased content and reVive R610D, an impact modified grade with no bio-content that takes recycled PP and enhances its properties, answering the increased demand for clean, recycled PP.

Cereplast Chairman and CEO Mr. Frederic Scheer stated, “Cereplast is committed to its quest for higher sustainability and we are always looking for ways to reduce the carbon footprint of our product offerings. Not only does adding recycled materials to our bioplastic resins improve the overall environmental benefits, we hope that it also encourages further recycling of PP, for which recycling is typically very low. We are offering the reVive line as an answer to the demands of market, which in the USA is geared toward an increased use of recycled material. In addition, reVive will be close to parity with traditional recycled material, while offering a superior carbon footprint for companies that are interested in enhanced sustainability. We are excited to launch reVive on America Recycles Day, the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting recycling programs in the United States.”
