Nelson, New Zealand- Tawaho Management Limited, a sustainable market development company, in collaboration with USA based New Composite Partners, has recently announced the availability of a new exciting product as an alternative to conventional petroleum based plastic resins for manufacturing applications.

Environmentalists believe that the recycling and disposal of plastic waste is one of the greatest challenges facing industrialized countries. Most plastic products are made from non-renewable sources, are hard to dispose of and have toxic by-products when incinerated. Only a small fraction of plastic is actually recycled.

Derived from soybeans, SoyPlus® is a revolutionary soy-based plastic that has wide ranging possibilities for thousands of businesses and millions of consumers.

After processing soy with other ingredients, the resulting resins can be molded into a
variety of products. The new plastic can be as durable and functional as traditional plastic yet the bio-based nature of the plastic means it is environmentally friendly, and can be
economically and safely disposed of.


Tawaho Management Limited holds exclusive commercial rights for Soy Plus® in Australasia. Conventional plastic customers have compelling strategic and economic reasons to replace non-degradable conventional plastic products with biodegradable and compostable plastics made from SoyPlus® resins.

Despite its innovative nature, soy-based plastic products can be manufactured using standard types of equipment common to the plastics industry. This means modest capital investment is required for customers to bring the technology in-house. Start-up costs for manufacturers are also reasonable. Unlike synthetic degradable products, SoyPlus® resins come from renewable resources, are more eco-friendly than petroleum-based plastics, and problematic waste disposal is eliminated.


The unique features of SoyPlus® plastics offer immediate marketing advantages for licensee customers; easy disposability and environmental advantages make SoyPlus® products ideal for consumers.

A few of the many potential products include:

· Home and garden supplies (seedling trays, planter pots, landscape stakes)
· Temporary signage (ID cards, tags and labels, highway reflector plates)
· Food service items (cutlery, trays, and similar products for institutional settings, cruise ships,
and resorts,
· Industrial packaging (stretch wraps, nesting trays)
· Mulching/agricultural products
· Toys/novelties (golf tees, animal chew toys)
· Building materials


SoyPlus® plastics can have a tremendous favorable impact on the environment. Whereas traditional plastics made from petroleum can take more than 100 years to degrade, SoyPlus® plastics can break down in composting in a few weeks or even a few days. SoyPlus® is from a renewable resource, and when it degrades in the soil it returns certain nutrients back to the earth.

The environmental benefits of making and using soy-based plastics include:
· Derivation from a renewable source
· Reduced generation of solid waste
· Lower energy consumption of manufacturing process
· Aerobic and anaerobic biodegradability/compostability simplifies disposal
· Animal edible formulas possible
· Degradation by-products non-toxic
· Safely biodegrades in sea and fresh water; harmless to marine life
· When NOT disposed of properly, SoyPlus® plastic litter simply disappears

SoyPlus® is currently "Made in America" from a line of products offered by New Composite Partners.
