A healthier future made together by Earth and LG
LG Chem, LETZero
Eco-friendly Product Brand LETZero
Our new biodegradable materials include PBAT and PLA. PBAT, which is scheduled to be commercialized in 2024, is being used to make disposable plastic bags and agricultural mulching films for its flexibility. To contribute to global carbon neutrality, we plan to replace petroleum-derived raw materials in our products with biomaterials in the future. PLA is an eco-friendly resin used as a biodegradable material with 100% bio content, produced by extracting starch from corn and sugar cane. With excellent strength and transparency, it has versatile applications in packaging materials, films, and 3D printers. Another recently invented material called PLH, developed independently by LG Chem's original technology, is over 20 times more flexible and transparent compared to existing materials.
