      Eastman Kodak was the recipient of the 2015 Innovation in Bioplastics Award for its work on a bio-toner that is comprised of more than 90% biodegradable and biobased materials.

        The company formulated the bio-toner with Ingeo resin, made from polyactic acid and renewable resources and natural waxes.

        Eastman Kodak uses the waste byproduct lactic acid as feedstock for its other products. The bio-toner is used in the electro-photographic industry.

    Keith Edwards, the chairman of the SPI Bioplastics Division at BASF, said that although bioplastics isn’t necessarily a revolution, Eastman Kodak’s evolution of the toner is innovative. He anticipates the toner will have a large number of applications, while having the potential to make an impact in the marketplace.
