Product Description
Eastman TREVA™ Renew engineering bioplastic OP6026-71 Natural is a new cellulose-based engineering bioplastic that offers both high performance and reduced environmental impact. Renew polymers enable a brand to reduce consumption of fossil feedstock-based plastics, achieve sustainability targets without compromise, and be a fast mover in a growing market for sustainable consumer products.

TREVA is chemically resistant, dimensionally stable, flows well, is BPA-free, and has low birefringence.

Eastman Renew polymers have been certified by International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC), a global, independent agency for tracking sustainable content in a variety of industries. Renew polymers are produced with ISCC certified circular content by mass balance allocation.
